Re: Best placement for 3/8" lead wire weights

https://i.imgur.com/SoX8shY.png The car would be 1/2" thick at the rear and we are allowed to move the axle holes (that's another thing we'll offer at the workshop). This seems like the most advantageous compromise between aero and weight placement that I can come up with, but I thought I'd collect...

Re: Best placement for 3/8" lead wire weights

VK, The very last drilled weight pocket in the end of the car.. could you change up your COG even more by drilling it a little bit higher up from the bottom of the car body?

Re: 8 car boxed set's for Awana

As a kid in Awana's club
I never payed much attention to how the kits were un-boxed !
But that's been years back since I was in Awana's.. and that I can recall seeing the kits passed out in the plastic bags.


I placed an order for the 8 car box set to add to my collection and kit history display.

Might try looking at the push button counters that keep tally's of how many times the button is pushed! The cheap electronic ones that have lanyards you can ware around your neck or the simple push counter types that are hand held. You can find them on the web for $9.00 Or so. Sent from my iPhone us...

Can I have some help?

Stephen, this is what I did some time back for decals on some vintage style pinewood derby cars I raced for the 100th Anniversary to Scouting! The pack I was helping at the time wanted to do a vintage style throw back race using the current style wheels and axles. Some pic's of the cars: http://i64....

Can I have some help?

To answer some of your questions. It is not necessary to drill new axle holes if your car has the axle slots and rules say they must be used. Most fast cars all ride on 3 wheels and rail ride. There are different ways to set your car up. And I know what you're saying about the tools being expensive!...
