Re: Wotamalo District Races 2/20/10 Results

I helped out at the pack race this year but couldn't make district. I knew the Webelos I car was going to be tough to beat at district. I have had a chance to coach my stepson and his son for a few years as well as a few others through work. Like you, I still have a list of experiments that I would ...

Re: 2 wheeler. Has anyone pulled it off with sucess?

We designed an inline two wheeler for district. It would beat our three wheelers by half a car length. However, at the last minute my son decided to just run a conventional 3 wheeler. He won overall but I was hoping to go public with the 2 wheeler. With the weight to the side, even if a bar went ove...

Re: Wotamalo District Pinewood Derby 2008

Stan - Thanks for the update on our district races. The racing today was certainly very close and exciting. Alex's race was certainly a back and forth nailbiter right on through the runoff. Congratulations on his win. At our pack we have a well organized program that helps to keep the excitement and...

Re: Interesting debate

Interestingly, I hide neither my equipment nor my willingness to share. Each year a few ... a very few ... find their way to my basement shop. .............. But you gotta find 'em and ask 'em! By the way, BL, drop on by! :) I don't "keep pinewood derby" secrets very well. Hey, Stan! My son has a b...

Re: A Test of Tooling

Stan - You mentioned under the other factors of interest that the low run of the night was 2.402. Please confirm if that was Alex's best time. If it was another car's time, was that car running cambered axles? Hello, Bill! No, Alex was running closer to 2.445 I think. Some variance. ...... Does you...

Re: What if Stan Pope's grandson was in your Pack?

Good idea! There are some serious pineheads in this area! (We musta caught 'em nappin' this year!) So a support group might be just the thing! As we talked after the race, my son was caught resting on his laurels this year. There seems to be a pattern: 1st in district age group as Tiger, 2nd in dis...
