Over the past month or so, I've been taking welding classes at a local community college. And I've been wanting to engineer something using my recently acquired skills. I've had an interest in bobsleds and the sport of bobsledding since I was a little kid. So I figure, what better project to take part in....build a bobsled. Now that I've decided I'd like to apply my engineering and physics knowledge along with my welding skills towards a bobsled, I need a starting point. I've been looking for links related to bobsleds and the physics behind them, but I cannot get anything. I came across a book at a local used book shop called "Engineering The Next Bobsled", but its copyrighted 1979. The only link I found was a physical simulation analysis from a bobsled on the track (Here's the link). So if anyone can point me in the right direction with books, weblinks, etc. I'd greatly appreciated. Any help at all really. Thanks.
