PINEWOOD DERBY CAR SHOWCASE
Sponge Fun - Brian & Grant Masek
This was the car that I told you about that they wouldn't check in
since it didn't have all four wheels on the ground. We took the car
home that night, pulled the front end apart, and cut new axle slots
through the epoxy with a band saw. We wedged the axles back in with
paper shims and re-glued so that all four wheels touched the ground.
The car took 3rd in our pack and 4th in the district.
Formula One - Brian Masek
This Formula One was from your plans. I made it just for fun since it
looked like a cool design.
Purple People Eater - Ardie T.
Attached is my 2012 adult class derby car winner. As the name
applies, it just about ate up the competition. The tail wing was made
from a piece off of the main block. Just so happened, it fit
perfectly. I looked at it and said, "Yeah, this will be cool". With
some help from your axles and wheels, and a bit of polishing of the
axles, it was a true winner.
