4-wheel Canted

Can a 4-wheels canted car be a fast setup? Thought was to use the Silver Bullet Pro tool for 3 degrees on all four wheels. Optional Backstory: My son's pack uses the four wheels must touch rule (nothing about canting). I've read descriptions about tuning a 4-wheel touch RR, but that's not for us. He...

Re: Fastest Den?

No, we actually race each den and then the top three from each den. Most of the kids seem to like watching the cars race. As long as we move quickly and have good announcing, they seem to stay pretty dialed in. We do have other activities.

Re: Fastest Den?

Good Point. I'm now interested to know if 101 runs everyone together or if they compete Den by Den. If they race Den by Den, I can't quite picture a family waiting 3 or 4 hours to find out who won the Den trophy. If they race them all together everyone would know at the same time. I'm hopeful mehig...

Re: Fastest Den?

I realize gpraceman has answered your question but if I may ask a question. What is your true goal? If the den with 4 scouts are all Webelos and the den with 14 scouts are Tigers, what do you think will happen? I suspect the Webelos that participate are all skilled builders and the Tigers not so mu...

Re: Fastest Den?

Thank you.

Maybe this is a stupid question, but how are the team ranked? We have four kids dens to 14 kid dens.

Fastest Den?

Can any of the software packages available quickly determine the fastest den?

Re: How Low Is Too Low?

Thanks. Our pack has a wooden track, but the districts are often on an aluminum track.

How Low Is Too Low?

My son and I built a test car that has ground clearance of a hair over 3/8" and standard wheelbase, but the 2" nose measured from the axles to tip. My question is will the nose rub during the transition from banked to flat?

Re: How to keep eBay cars out of your race

I don't care if my boys or I win or lose in our race, though we put a lot of effort into winning. I understand the sentiment, but I have to admit I do care. More to the point, my son cares, and that's why we put the effort in. But, all the effort means more time together. Anyway, we're on the same ...

Re: Top Den Award

Promote the top three finishers from each den to a championship race, is how I would do it. Then present them as teams, "Representing Team Wolf, we have..." If you're running timed races, you can give the cup to whichever Den has the lowest average combined times. Thanks for the reply. Our current ...

Top Den Award

I'm looking to create a Cubmaster Cup trophy for the fastest den. The main goal is to further boost sportsmanship by encouraging den mates to cheer for each other. The secondary goal is to just add a new element and keep the PWD from getting old and/or routine--especially for the older Cubs. My pack...
