The 2006 World Championship Punkin Chunk was a great year for both Mista Ballista, and the entire Torsion Class. Records were broken (Congrat's Marc and the Chucky team) and Mr. B broke all team records for distance!

Mr. B getting ready to launch. 2800 lbs of measured tension is sitting at the trigger!

That's approximately 22700 foot pounds at the base of the arm, and perhaps 26800 foot pounds at the point where we had a catastrophic failure last year.

To put in that tension, we had about 7000 lbs exerted by the hydraulic ram which was running around 800psi at the pump.


Sproing! 670 feet!

Thanks to Jim Goodwin for these two great pictures.


The Motley Crew that pulled it together is Team Tormentum! Top-left to bottom right;

Eric Ludlam (captain), Kevin Johnson, Roger Nichols, Jeff Del Papa, Dave Shepard.

Also, a hearty thanks from all of us to Custom Composite Technologies Inc. for the new stronger and pretty arms.

World Championship Chunk 2006 - Mista Ballista Mista Ballista left it's mark on the Chunkin field with two throws over 600 feet, but getting there wasn't easy. Our first two days were plagued with bundle winding problems. On the bright side, we made it through the year without breaking the arms, or any other major throwing component of the machine. Huzzah!
World Championship Chunk 2006 - Torsion When Adam (of team Chucky) stands up on stage and says "TORSION RULES", he means it. Chucky II of the torsion class out threw all other catapults on the field with an amazing throw of over 2000 feet. Wow!
