    DocJancsi,
    In your rules for GLFSC 2019 you referred to dens over and over again, did you mean rank? I know most packs have only 1 den but a few have 2 or more in each rank.
    On page 8, 10.1.1, it says " The Great Lakes Field Service Council 2019 Cub Scout Pinewood Derby Den Championship Races". I know that the GLFSC is not running dens (too confusing), is it by rank?
    Thank you :-)

    Hey, good job, I know last year the car was “It” if I remember right that was fast. Small world, my wife said your car was really fast. I bet it feels great going out on top. My phone number is below and I live basically in Middleburg/purcellville line. I won’t be home for another month but can text if you have an iPhone.

    Sup Jay! How have you been? Still racing? I might want to build a car/re-learn or learn the skills again as my son will be in scouts this year if he wants to be. So I figured I should sharpen the skills again.

    Jimmy,

    Thanks for your advice on testing out our car on a test track. We were able to get a hold of the race track before our districts and once set up I looked at all of the joints and rails. More then a few were pretty rough so I wet-sanded as best I could which worked out pretty well. Everything worked out well and my son is going on to NYC so we will get to build another car.

    Thanks again,
    Anthony

      Glad it all worked out! We are gearing up for our churches Awana GP next month and I know for a fact our track needs help bad. I’ll be doing the same thing. I am trying to get more involved so as to be able to help others find speed as we intend on sending tops boys and girls to Awana State championships in April. Should be a fun time but I for one don’t want our track chewing up everyone’s wheels! Lol

    Gravity, in one of the COM/weight discussions, you mentioned a 3 scale method. Can you provide me a video or detailed instructions on how to do this? One other question, would biasing weight to one side of the car help "steer" the DFW into the rail? Thanks for your help!
