Phillip suggested we mention the power tool drag races, a San Francisco event that’s been making the rounds for a while now. He writes: “Get out the old tools and hop them up for an afternoon at the track! There’s a discussion forum and a mailing list you can sign up for. Cool!”
The linked site mentions an event last year — around the time of last years MAKEr Faire, if I remember correctly — but hopefully they’ll have some new events this year. A quick search on YouTube’ll find you dozens of videos of the action.
