Be sure to check out the rules. I found it quite interesting that they were using 4 x 4 fence posts for the trucks and metal drywall studs as the track.
we've seen wheels that have been specially machine lathed, and axles that have been grooved to form lubricant pockets, and a wide variety of other techniques used to make the wheels run truer or generate less friction. These approaches can become very time consuming and expensive and are, in our opinion, the product of unhinged minds. Obviously, we're all in favor of that.

Did you see the weight? I was highly tempted to build one for him, but our scout derby was coming up and I couldn't ahve done either justice if I took it on.
the guy took some heat about buying a truck, but he was upfront and was giving dredit where credit was due, good guy really.
