    So much great info in this video! Thank you for the time you took to help a new guy and share it with all of us. I like the blocks to test the drill, very smart! I like your timing system on all parts of the track. I like the fat Bering wheels as a test car. I like it baby!

    In the end though it looks like I didn't do any worse than a flat quarter inch block though as long as it had the same rear wheel placement. What I did get out of that though is that the gains were pretty evenly offset by the losses. I still wanted to post it no matter what the result because it's all about the learnin'.

    I am starting to feel very at home with the people here. Helpful, intelligent, meticulous, and always open to testing new ideas. Not bad for a group of fierce competitors.

    Sorry, there might still be something there, but the design, as Bracketracer put it, had to punch too big of a hole through the air. I took it down. The Natalee car is now a common flat design.
