Re: Shipping Trucks

I hope Mark took a bunch of pictures and knows the results of the Big Rg B's they did not post. camera scrolled to floor after Spirit of America broke the track record. Nothing but the cords on the floor for what seemed like forever. When camera was turned up they were putting the stop section back ...

Re: Shipping Trucks

Looked like Whoda must have got your rig fixed up. Not sure what this ridiculously long delay is all about. But, good that we got to see it run!

Re: Shipping Trucks

I understand the Big Rig B drive. And, the 18 wheeler truck and trailer is intimidating. But, Whoda inspired me. After seeing his I know I have no chance in the looks department. And having to add a guidepin last minute... We'll see what happens. Are they racing the rigs today or tomorrow? Hoping si...

Re: Non-tungsten, non-toxic car

I don't have a track or a piece of curve to check. So, It's all guess work on my end. Thanks for the follow up.

2 oz tungsten blocks. Where did you find those? What are they like 1" cubes ?

Re: Non-tungsten, non-toxic car

Speedster: Pretty sure whodathunkit, being the super cool guy that he is, was just answering my question. I've gotta say $3.00 wouldn't even cover the shipping for the weight. So, there is some appeal there. But, your statement "Any weight that is put in front of the rear axle puts more weight on th...

Re: Non-tungsten, non-toxic car

I wonder how many roles of pennies it would take to come up to weight on a Big Rig. Might be kind of cool to make them the cargo. Maybe a logging truck.

Re: Stretched frame pusher axle Peterbilt.

You're lucky to have a track speedster.. I wish I had one! AGREED!!!! Where you can also find all types of woodworking patterns for making semi trucks.. that will need scaled down for pinewood derby semi trucks. A lot of the build style that I use for building semi trucks from scratch woods is what ...

Re: Stretched frame pusher axle Peterbilt.

"Plus in the pic you may note that there are moved out words from the frame so they rub on the track rails.."

I think you meant not rub the rails.

Nice to see your craftsmanship is just as nice on the parts most don't see.

I really like your Big Rig stands!
