Re: This year's BSA Axles

Because of the lopsided axles heads, we decided not to risk it. So, we went with the older axles.

Re: Money race

I wouldn't run a money race. With our derby, the race is the culmination of a month of work, with the kids building their cars with parents and other adults teaching and supporting them. The winners are congratulated, the others are consoled, and it's a good family time. With a money race (especial...

Re: District Race Results

Again, congrats to both of you on a job well done. I believe we saw some of the tightest racing at the Districts this year than any other year! :clap: Here is a link to a pic I snapped of BenMar's sons car (it is the red/white/blue in lane one on the far right): http://s27.photobucket.com/albums/c16...

Re: When can a car be disqualified?

I saw a case like this yesterday. The car passed inspection and was impounded. But as the registration / inspection process continued, it was noticed that the car in question had a notched front end. It was enough to give at least 1/4" advantage past the starting pin. This is not allowed in our dist...

Re: Pack Champion

Again, congrats on the win! :clap: I've seen and held the car. It looks and feels like the Champion it is! I agree with the LEAVE IT ALONE advice! Work that new graphite in and you should be good to go. Have you added the extra weight yet? If not, contact me before you do. I have something that migh...

Re: Rules violations, kit cars, and attitudes (long read)

Rules are designed as guidelines, honesty and integrity can not be legislated. Reminds me of a law enforcement adage : "Locks are designed to keep honest people honest, thieves will always get in!" How does keeping rules to a minimum encourage creativity and imagination? I would think the opposite ...

Guys,

We seem to be getting a little off topic from the original post so I split the topic and posted a new thread "Dumb Luck And Track Variations".

She told me that she didn't know what I was up to but that my "alleged" whistle car looked more like a "contraband pipe" from Willie Nelson's tour bus, whatever ...
