    Ok guys heres the rundown.... 1 of my two scouts will be advancing past districts. His current car is the fastest one weve ever built to date but finished third at regionals .002 behind first place with an accumlitive three run time so it was VERY close....his car has a tight 1/2" cog ....and a seemingly terminal case of the wiggles just after the transition. His next race is not till june so we have some time to work it out....his rears were drilled at 3 degrees straight axles with .01 gap , 5 3/4" of drift over 4' lathed wheels with black iced bores ...I'm in that spot where I hate to lose what weve got but cars are only getting faster with each race and theres obviously more speed to be had cuz ya know...we werent first ;)

    Roll a cube forward and see if that eliminates the wiggles. If not then roll another and if that doesn't work reprep your wheels or add steer
