I was wondering if there are places to go test run your car on a track? I'm not a wizard at woodworking or anything mechanical, so it would be nice to catch any problems with the car before the race. (Our derby is this Saturday)
Is there perhaps a website that might have a list of "public tracks"?
Our pack has a 'pit night', (ours is this thursday), where they set up the track and the boys can take test runs. We also have a 'pit crew', with weights, graphite and dremels in hand to help the boys fine tune their cars. Perhaps you could convince your pack to adopt a similar tradition.

Ours locally don't set up a track (although I keep squeezin' 'em to do so), but kratev13 has a local place by him that sets one up for the season and lets the boys do test runs on it.
Just a thought.
Thanks Derbyman... But I was hoping to find an option that wouldn't require further expense... Got a mortgage payment due...DERBYMAN wrote:1/4 IN. plywood 6 to 8 ft X 4IN . 1 Wood lat . Glue on plywood . Put one end on brick and let it roll down
