Re: Is My Car Fast? Time Distributions and Percentiles

Re: another pack win

I was happy he decided to finish the car and race it.
i was supprised it was faster than mine.
his best time was 3.0475 on a 42' best track.
i think my com was less than his.
maybe that is why his car was more stable.

Re: I'm not haveing any axel polishing issues tonight.

not sure if i get it.
first you say stock bsa rite out of the box.
then you say you removed the crimp marks.
and the pics are slightly a blurr.
either way i would still polish to 12000 grit at least.
and the same for the bores.
either way good luck.

Re: Car painted. Cant the non-DFW wheel?

i was worried about this this year. what i did was just before allignment i sprinkled some graphite around the axle hole neatly and used a spare (junk) wheel to press it into the body leaving a small area for the hub to rub on if contact was made. after the wheels where on you could hardly see it. i...
