Things like how to properly prep wheels/axles, plan before you build, painting techniques. I realize all of this info is available on the net - ie here, but I am trying to simplify this for myself and not have to worry about using the work of others without consent.
I can type this stuff up myself, but if someone has something they know works and is easily understood, it's just one less thing for me to worry about.
I figure if I can get the info out there ahead of time, maybe some will read it and have an idea as to what we will try to accomplish during the workshops - might even help get more volunteers since they'll have an idea as to what we'll be doing.
With everyone's busy lives, I am trying to find something that I can use to cover both - folks who make the workshops and those too busy to make it, but want some help. I really want to at least make the information available to folks - they can pick and choose what to use or not.
Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post.
I am working on getting a workshop workbook made. This involves me getting my notes together with my hand drawings put into electronic form to share.

The correct links to his 2 presentations are on the 2nd page, and for people who can't attend the workshop at all the 1st "Pinewood Derby Performance Design, an introduction..." Power Point is excellent.
Note also in the post I mentioned above there is a picture of a Construction Demonstration model that is helpful. Another similar picture can be found under the Constructions Workshops forum post entitled, oddly enough, Construction Demonstration Model. EDIT: added the link below.
