    My daughter won grand champion at our Pack race. She also set a new track record at 2.9765 on our 42' best track. Special thanks to John at DD4H for the awesome wheel/axle prep products and the Holy Water is da bomb!

    Would love to upload car pics but it keeps telling me the pics are too large but yet they are under the file size limit...weird.

    Finally able to get a pic uploaded...cant tell but its actually pink glitter vinly wrapped. 1/4 ladder body with 4oz of tungsten cubes...12 behind and 12 in front of rear axle.....4.75" wheelbase drilled with a 5bushing clear jig for rail running so no bend axle for steer. Car ran smooth all the way down the track with no wiggle at all.

    Guess temp and humidity play a role as far as oil lube goes. I took our track to another pack to run their race today. After setting track up and levelling it I ran her car down for a few test runs and it ran 2.949 and then settled down into 2.951ish times.

    I'll have to try and figure it out. None of the hill or curve brackets have been moved so track should have had same set up as before.
