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

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.)
