Re: Wiping off too much NYE-OIL!

No real ideas, but I have experienced the discoloration as well. My 10 year old's car just set a new track record at our church a couple of weeks ago, and the nyoil that was on there has been on there since March.

Re: More ebay Fun

You're right, it's all in the wording. I just hope that there aren't too many people buying these things. If they are, then they're just cheating themselves, and their kids. I know it's been stated a thousand times, but there's a lot more to Pinewood Derby than just the race. The race is the celebra...

Re: Wiping off too much NYE-OIL!

Thanks Franklin, I've wondered about wiping the axle after the oil is applied. I gues the proper thing to do, would be if you have to work on the axle, clean it with alcohol then re apply the ny-oil. I'm just guessing here, but that would seem to be the best way to approach it.

Re: Lowe's Dremel Derby Design Contest Results?

Sounds really cool!!! I just don't have enough imagination when it comes to these things. I always try to do something scale. I love seeing the really creative cars though. Just wish I had that kind of thinking. Once again, congratulations. I'm sure you'll put that Dremel to good use!! :lol:

RA Gliders

RA's have a glider kit kind of similar to the space derby kit. It looks like it has wings instead of fins. Does anyone have any tips on building these??

Re: Check in / Inspection

Caveman, I love your idea for a fixture. We used to have just a simple box that checked overall length and width. After seeing yours, I'm planning on building one just like it. I may make a couple of "tick" marks to line the axles up with to check the spacing between the front and rear axles. Great ...

Re: More ebay Fun

That's kind of what I was thinking as well. I feel pressure should be applied on the supply side. If all Scouts and Parents are doing the "right" thing, then there would be no demand for such products.

Re: More ebay Fun

I'm sorry I didn't realize that. If that's the case, then maybe Ebay should be consulted about such auctions.
