Blast Car

Post by sporty » Sat Mar 30, 2013 11:53 am

Well, the kits came. Does not come with C02 canister.

Here our some pictures, Still in work phase.


I can say, The wood is for me harder then I would like, And if you follow the rules. Its not all as easy as i thought it would be to try and shape and cut.

In all, this was a harder first experience, then I first thought it would be. And the axle and wholes, Not looking to be very good either.

But this is for fun and first try, what can we exspect after all.

Hard work, not at all please with the turn out, Axle wholes were a nightmare, But kids still like and will do some decals.

I think it would be much easier if the wood was softer to work with.

FWIW, there is a Pro-Body tool available for Blastcars. Did you use it, and if not, do you think such a tool would have helped?

No I don't have the tool.

I did see they sell the tool, worked wheels and grooved axles for these cars.


I had no interest or the money to buy all that stuff. For perhaps a 1 time build.

My oldest son will be 17 this year and except for his eagle scout project, hes done and my younger son, Does not seem to be interested in boy scouts and does nto seem to be long for staying in. But will have to wait and see. I know he misses allot.

Im not even sure they are going to make it over next weekend for them to go and run them.
