The torsion class enjoyed some weather ranging from cloudy with a bit of rain, to sunny and warm. There was a new torsion engine joining the group, and team Chucky who has dominated the torsion line for years was dethroned as Onager joins the 3000ft club for 1st place this year.



The Torsion Line-up


First Place: Onager

3105.34 ft

There was a strong tailwind on Friday, so Bob took a chance and cranked Onager up to take advantage of it and got off an amazing shot breaking into the 3000 ft club, securing his first place trophy.


Second Place: Ethos


Ethos pied their first and second shots, but then they came in with a great 3rd shot securing 2nd place.

2424.66 ft


Third Place: Roman Revenge


1542.30 ft

Roman Revenge owner Kim had a bad fall on Friday when a torsioning winch line broke, and the tackle block was launched through his ladder and 50 ft out into the field. The team scratched their first shot of the competition while he went to the hospital. He was a real trooper though and was back later that day and finished setting up his machine. On day two they pied their 2nd shot, but then on Sunday they got off a reasonable shot securing 3rd place.


Fourth Place: Gaul Buster


1394.20 ft

The Gaul buster team pied their first shot, but was able to get off great shots for both Saturday and Sunday.


Fifth Place: Mista Ballista


1059.8 ft


Sixth Place: Black Pearl Smasher


254.66 ft

This was the Black Pearl's first year at the chunk. They worked hard, but their machine wasn't quite ready. Despite that, they didn't give up. When their arm folded over on Saturday, they spent their time trying to build a new one on-site out of the remains, and then got off their best shot of the competition on Saturday.


Seventh Place: Chucky II


PIE

Usually in first place, Team Chucky failed to launch any punkin intact, and that landed them in last place for the year.

World Championship Chunk 2013 Team Tormentum brought Mista Ballista, our torsion machine to the chunk in 2013.
World Championship Chunk 2013: Mista Ballista Mista Ballista returned to Delaware for the 2013 Punkin Chunk. After proving that compounding worked pretty well, we brought that back again this year to see if we could improve. We did not, however, want a repeat of the 2011 broken trailer leaf springs, so we replaced the front axle (the axle not replaced when the spring broke last time) and also rewired the trailer to improve reliability.
