Additional Pitsco Dragster article:
Pitsco Education is excited to introduce the new Fusion
(polyurethane) CO2 dragster blank. Officially approved by the
Technology Student Association (TSA) for use in CO2 dragster
competition, these blanks are a state-of-the-art substitute for
balsa and basswood blanks.
The high-density foam of the Fusion blanks can be
formed and finished very similar to wood by using power
tools or hand tools. The mass of the Pitsco Fusion Blank is
approximately equivalent to lightweight balsa wood blanks
and is uniformly distributed throughout the body of the blank.
This structural integrity has an advantage over wood grain in
that it enables you to utilize designs that have thicker parts or
features without making the dragster heavy.
In short, the new Fusion composite blanks are awesome!
