oh and be careful its FAST

please leave any comments or ideas that could be of use
thanks =)

Step 3: Ect.

this has been updated. sorry about all the inconvenices this has caused.
pam is just a brand of non-stick cooking spray, so it really just is cooking oil.

cool I not going to try it though.

You all have all wrong! ;) You have a group of young strong teenagers pickup the sled you're on and throw it down the hill. Making you have a starting speed faster than you would normally finish. By the time you get to the bottom you are pretty sure you have passed through the time barrier and when the pain of the crash hits you, well you understand. hahahahah

What about taking the good ol' Toboggan, put some weights on it, and pack down the snow, then take a heater (hair dryer, heat gun, et cetera) and melt the top of the newly-packed snow so that it turns into ice? After that is done, you THEN take some cooking spray, and spray the bottom of the sled. You will go MUCH faster.

(What the heck? Why not take a bottle of cooking oil and pour THAT down your newly made ICE-SLIDE? THAT is what I call insanely fast!)

Come on did we learn nothing from christmas vacation!!

Silcon like wd40 also works give it a try

finnrambo (author)coyne1232011-01-17

WD40 isn't silicon

Wingmaster700 (author)2010-11-28

toboggans have to be the fastest sleds i have ever been on on powder snow, and some candle wax or cooking spray, you will fly. My bro and I have a solid 2sec hang-time when we hit a jump with a toboggan.

On ice, or really dense/packed snow a flexible flier is extremely dirty. clean up the runners nice and add some surfing wax goes a long way, however after a while they do ruin the sledding area

it looks to be a first instructable, lay off just a bit

elkalpin (author)led2352010-01-22

i'm with you XD

Bridel568 (author)elkalpin2010-01-28

sorry guys but it isn't a first it's just what i could do because i put this up after the snow melted, and i forgot to take pictures when i did this. but im gonna update it soon when i go tubing this year, ill also put up how it works too

Thundertydus (author)2009-12-14

Hahaha, your not kidding!
It's alot faster than before. I always thought about this but never really tried it 'til now, and I flipped over going so fast!

Yerboogieman (author)2009-12-13

Tube? That's like using a cart on mario kart Wii, gotta use one of those slick bottom smooth sleds.

TheScientist (author)2009-01-18

cool idea. i reckon if you want to get featured you could go into more detail: why does it work? also might be good to tell people what PAM is, because not everyone lives where you live, so it's not necessarily available under that brand name everywhere. looks like it'd be awesome fun, shame it's about 30ºC here in Australia every day though :)

Bridel568 (author)TheScientist2009-01-21

I'm sorry bought where you live but if you have any relatives outside Australia that might live up north maybe when you go see them there could be snow on the ground. but anyway sorry bought where you live. it must stink to be there sometimes

TheScientist (author)Bridel5682009-01-21

it snows near me in winter :) and remember, Australia is in the southern hemisphere, so we go south to get colder, going north heads toward the tropics! and it never stinks to be in Australia!

Mrfixit123 (author)TheScientist2009-08-16

Does the toilet flush the other way.

Bridel568 (author)TheScientist2009-01-23

oh. I didn't see it like that. sorry

"i reckon if you want to get featured"

He would also need to have taken all the pictures himself.

pam is basically just vegetable oil in a spray can easy to find

fatboy106 (author)2009-02-01

what exactly is "pam" and is there an english version?(i live in england)

Vulcanator (author)2009-01-26

I went sledding today, in Ohio, at kendall hills, it was crazy. We sprayed the bottoms of our sleds with silicone mold release spray, which is basically dry silicone--- way better than pam

Bridel568 (author)Vulcanator2009-01-27

maybe but pam is a lot cheaper

Bridel568 (author)2009-01-21

well you can also use a plastic one. I guess it doesn't matter

franglish9265 (author)2009-01-19

srry about all these comments but the sled item is a bit incorrect, to reduce the friction it should have the smallest amount of surface area possible so maybe a toboggan or rectangular shaped sled.also why did you cut my comments?

Bridel568 (author)franglish92652009-01-21

yes those also go fast. also I didn't cut your comments so sorry bought the inconvenience

Badger_Man (author)2009-01-19

mmm, i have "sled shoes" (of my own design) this would work great with them...

jeff-o (author)2009-01-19

Hmmm, watched a little bit of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, did we? ;)

ALSO the more small and round the molecules the less rotational friction therefore reducing the total friction. I think the perfect surface for sledding would be a completely flat sheet of stainless steel, with graphite rubbed on and Benzene and Bucky balls for the lubricant. (the benzene would be the solvent).

I'm going to our winter camp with the Scouts this weekend so I'll try it. In the old days we used to melt wax on the the wooden tobbagans (which was scary fast!), now all the kids have plastic sleds, so I imagine Pam must slide like crazy. I'll also bring silicone lubricant spray to try.

Doctor What (author)2009-01-18

I've done this before! It's fun. Except, when you hit a bump, fly, lose the sled, and land on ice.

DIY Dave (author)2009-01-18

I'll have to try this.
