Here are the rules for our pack on axles, what is your opinion?
We've had fun building the car, its pretty much done, my son has had some part in all aspects of its build, but if we can be a little more competitive then I'm all for it as long as we are within the rules. Last thing I want is to have an issue on inspection day.AXLES:
BSA Nail type axles are required with an overall diameter of no less than .084 inches for each wheel. Some polishing and/or modification is allowed as long as overall diameter is not reduced below .084 requirement.
Grooves are allowed; the depth of the groove(s) is not limited so long as the journal portion of the axle (the part the wheel rides on) is no less than the stated minimum diameter.
Axles must not be connected to any device that mechanically alters rotation or spin. Axles must be mounted into the wood sections of car. Drilled holes or slots can be used.
Approved lubricants include (but are not limited to) graphite, Teflon, Nyoil, and Krytox.
Over-application of lubricant which results in excessive shedding onto the track is not allowed.
