  • bobsleds

    I've been watching the Olympic bobsleding and was wondering what the sleds were made out of. I was thinking the shell is carbon fiber and steel, maybe chrome moly ? May be Andy might know, being the sleds are build in the Nascar area. Thanks

          I was just on Lincoln's site and they supply welders to the bobsled team to build the sleds. Looks to me that they are steel not composites.

          I saw Lincoln had their own bobsled at the Bo-Dyn Challenge where the NASCAR drivers race.
