PINEWOOD DERBY CAR SHOWCASE
Delorean - Daniel Stalzer
This car was created after my son saw "Back to the Future". He wanted a car that was fast and would "travel through time". I made two of the cars, one for each of my sons. The cars won creativity and speed awards.
The only thing I did to help was painting the car, helping with tools, and installing the wires. Unfortunately the 2nd car was destroyed during the younger boy's play time.
Arrow - Aaron Shain and Jim White
My grandson (Aaron Shain) and I built this car for his 2012 RA (Royal Racers) event here in Kentucky. "The Arrow", as he calls the car, has a carbon fiber rod down the car center for extra strength. We hope it hits a "Bull's Eye" at the races. (The hole in the side is for final adjustment of the car weight using tungsten putty when the wheels are changed for different races.)
