Re: May 2 Coronavirus Sucks Race

Thank You. That will make it easy for everyone. I'm thinking there are thousands of AWANA racers that might have always wondered how they would do against a scout car. I realize the wheel and axle rules are very lenient but it could be lots of funny anyway. Perhaps a lot of the racers have never ha...

Re: The BSA nail

Thank you, Kenny. We cannot plate the nail with nickel but I'm glad you did that. That helps me to explain the point I was trying to make. The BSA nail comes with a zinc coating. I feel the casting marks under the head should be carefully removed. THE END. Anything done to the nail after that will ...

I was told if running oil use this.
You should ask them how to use it properly. The oil process done right can unlock quite a bit of speed!!

Re: Pipe Cleaners

Been using Tamiya 87106 swabs for bore polishing using Novus2 and following up with the fuzzy 6mm Chenille Pipe Cleaners from Hobby Lobby. Have recently found some quality DILL'S all cotton cleaners. Im sticking with the Novus but want to experiment with the finishing process. Staying with what I'v...

Re: Polishing AWANA axles

Loud2ns thanks for the suggestion. Will do as you specified with the 2000 and 2500. Headed downhill, but in a good way. Thanks and I'd like to give you something in return. A quote you may want to use one day if you haven't heard it already. A quote from Smokey Yunick, the famous old school Chevy S...

Re: Cheaper alternative than liquid glass

Make sure the synthetic wax is both hydrophobic (repels water) and oleophobic (repels oil), as I have seen they almost always indicate that they are hydrophobic, but only a few state that they are also oleophobic. Do you know of a specific brand that is oleophobic? This way I just look for this. Me...

Re: Polishing AWANA axles

I've never used a file on AWANA axles as they are fairly smooth and basically slag free from the factory. Because the availability of single sheets at my local Napa ends at 1500 grit, my go to polishing sequence is 400 wet followed by wet 6,8,1000,1200,1500 for the shaft and under the head then fin...

Re: Wheel Bore Sealer

I think I've read all there is to read about this product. I can't find it on the Internet. Derby Evolution puts the sealer over the whole wheel. What are we sealing the wheel against? Moisture? After polishing with Novus 2 I use Liquid Glass and then graphite. Does the sealer take the place of the...

Re: Wheel Bore Sealer

Yes, the bore sealer from Derby Evolution, not the cleaning product. Problem is when I do it either way I’m left with a bore that is less shiny than simply polishing with Novus 2. Wondering if this is normal. I’ve been inspecting my process more carefully this season, and the sheen lessens after ap...
