Re: Micro Wizard / Derby Wizard

This announcement is a bit frightening to me and I suspect to many others. I have 2 Micro Wizard timers. How many hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Micro Wizard timers are being used today. If Stuart should simply decide to walk away and you have a Micro Wizard timer, how are you feeling right now? If...

Re: Derby Magic Drag Racing Setup

I think this set up would be a real Crowd Pleaser if it was set up at District races as a Fun track where anyone could race.
I wouldn't recommend it for regulation races. We use the KISS method - "Keep It Simple".

Randy, whose solenoid do you have on your personal track and whose solenoid did Ford have on their track?

Users On Line - 373

Greetings Racers On July 10, 2019, 1:10PM, I was cutting grass. When I finally saw there were 373 users On Line at that time I searched the Forums again to see what I missed but nothing had changed. Did something happen in the Universe or just a Big coincidence there were that many folks On Line at ...

Re: New York Race

For me, the order of importance would be as follows: 1. 4 wheels on the ground, no bending axles. I stay away from the ONE district in the Erie Council that requires all 4 wheels be on the ground. I can't imagine how many very fast 3 wheel rail riders would now need to put the 4th wheel down, probab...

Re: Stop section

The film is Great but the Stop Section is useless. Check the "Search" function for ideas. My stop section is made from 3/8" Plywood, 1/4" X 1 1/2" Pine Lattice strip ( stock size) and the lanes covered with Walmart drawer liner. The section is 8' long and I do not send the cars up a hill. I think an...

Re: New York Race

Randy, I wish you the Very Best on getting rules changed to try to make it more fair for everyone. It probably is too late for this year but I think it would benefit everyone in the future if the rules were different. You did a Great job on the rules for " Ford Fast Track Racing " and made it a lot ...

New York Race

I've read the rules for the Stock Class and I think they've made a huge mistake. ( 4 on the ground and NO bending axles ). That is far from making it fair for everyone. I think only the SUPER skilled will be able to accomplish building a very fast car. This, of course, is simply my opinion, because ...

Re: Shipping Trucks

Thank You. That answers some questions I had.
CONGRATULATIONS on the win. You have a Beautiful truck. Might you send a picture of it. I think folks would like to hear what you do for a living and how your truck was built.
I'd also like to hear how you shipped it without Busting it.

He's got a Class "A" truck and he took 1st place.
Speed Reaper, what's the total weight of your truck?
