Re: Wheel gap on RR

This year we converted our pack car with all 4 wheels touching (pack rules) over to a 3 wheeling, rail rider for the district race. We used the pro body tool to redrill the axel holes. We didn't want to do any repainting, so instead of narrowing the front on the DFW side, we went with a larger gap f...

Re: Fast & Furious Monster Track

That is awesome. I too am jealous, and have many questions......Is that an open race? How often do they run? I think my son would love to see his car in action on a track like that. Were you rail riding? ...... I think your velcro idea might be the ticket... Very, very cool.

Re: Newspaper reporter

That's great. I think I'll drop a subtle hint to our little, local paper. Maybe we can at least get a little write-up for our pack race. (Or a front page cover story if my boy wins :))

Re: District Race Results (better late than never)

We initially followed the directions and had a positive cant. But after reading several posts on here, we made the switch the morning of the race to a negative cant. About 2 seconds after getting the drift back where we wanted it, i started to understand the need for a test track and timer. Hmm....,...

Re: 2009 Scout car - The Barris Batmobile

Man,.... me and my boy were talking about getting more creative than our wedge next year but i told him that copying this might be biting off more than we can chew...... Really cool that it's fast too!

District Race Results (better late than never)

My son attended his first district race this past march. He finished our pack race in 2nd place for his rank (wolves), and due to them only advancing the top finishers from each rank he didn't get to race in the grand finals. However, using the times from the finals, he had the third fastest car in ...

Re: Need some advice

We had a similar issue this year. My wolf finished second in his rank, and had the third fastest car in our pack. While we were thrilled with the times, we were a touch disappointed that we didn't repeat as pack champions. We didn't go to districts last year as we didn't know they existed (our first...
