How did it go?

Hey Richard,

How did the Wal-Mart race go this year?

We participated last year and I was a bit disappointed about how little it was publicized and wasn't otherwise very organized. However, my kids and I had fun building their cars, which is the more important thing. :D

Re: Awana Mold Numbers

Although - as you indicate - there is variation, the Awana wheels are much more consistent than the BSA wheels. With Awana wheels, we have always used what we received in the kit. Usually one of the four spins worse, so we use it as the raised wheel. That's a good methodlolgy. I assume that Awana w...

Awana Wheel Mold Numbers

Regarding the mold numbers, are there certain numbers that you prefer, or do you just try to find a set of 4 that match? Which mold numbers do you like the best? Randy, I notice that the Awana wheels have numbers near the inside hub. I assume that these are mold numbers as well. Have you seen or he...

Re: To True or not to True, that is the question!

We just do a light sanding to remove imperfections. Some wheels take a little more work than others since on Awana wheels there can be a mold mark that leaves a bit of a flat spot on the tread. I found that the more that you work the wheels, the more likely you are to mess them up. Most rules do not...
