Re: Pro Body Tool 3.0

As to prices. The bushings are expensive. You can look them up yourself. The Clear Jig has a min of twice as many. I do not understand the Silver Bullet pricing. As to number of drills, of course you are going to get more drills with the hardened bushing then with the soft aluminum. There are cheape...

Re: Pro Body Tool 3.0

Speedster I don't think 3 is a magic number. The difference between drilling the holes canted and using straight axles and drilling straight holes and using bent axles is the amount of time it takes to tune it. The science of either way of doing it is the same. Less friction due to less surface of t...

Re: Pro Body Tool 3.0

I do not have the one in the link. I do have a Clear Jig (the one you linked copied). The clear jig also has the bushings to drill the front. You can add a fifth bushing that allows a Scout to use a straight axle on the DF. The cool thing about the clear jig is it is clear acrylic, so you can see th...

Re: Free Rocket Car Kit

I would love it. Maybe you can send it with the race software I need to order for th2 2021 West Coast Grand Prix. I sent you over some forms to get Lisano Enterprises listed as an approved vendor. Once approved we can get a PO placed and get the order in motion.

Re: 2021 West Coast Grand Prix

Thanks Speedster. My intention is for this event to happen even if live attendance is not allowed. With a small staff and some IT support there is no reason this event cannot be enjoyed over a live stream.

The last thing I want to do is have all the kids build toward an event that doesn't happen.

Re: Help with running a race at 2 different times, but ranked together.

Just an FYI. Racers who are allowed to race their cars individually will have an unfair advantage. Cars perform differently when their are cars in the other lanes. Why not, have them drop off their cars and put a live feed up so they can watch that way? I didn't know - still don't for that matter - ...

$25. Max PWD tool, block, axles and wheel kit

What is in the kit?
Sourcing for best pricing?
What do you have to have?
What can a student live without or find around the house?
....

Please help! This could have a significant impact on junior high kids in the Central Valley of CA and likely beyond.

Re: 7-10 hours Self Guided Course to build a PWD Car

Guys I could really use your help. I'm already working on getting the 3D Printed per student budget increased because it will not cover costs of wheels, axles and PLA needed to create a 3D printed car. I'm looking for a breakdown/Segments and what to put in each one. Thanks for your time in advance....

7-10 hours Self Guided Course to build a PWD Car

Just got this from my boss: One of the projects that we have going is to create 7-10 hours self guided classes for students in K6-8 in various Middle Schools to learn about CTE and do some hands-on activities at home. Each course needs to develop CTE skills and end with a culminating project. Studen...

Re: Weight bias Equation

Did you get my PM? I thought, do to timing, it was Dale Campbell - [no advertising for this vendor]. Used to watch Dale Sr. Gone too soon! I actually witnessed a very similar accident live at PIR. So, happy NASCAR is back racing. Wish they ran more on FOX. I hate waiting to see the ones they run on ...
