PINEWOOD DERBY CAR SHOWCASE
Some fan powered cars...
Elsa - Brian Taylor
My daughter and I had a great time making the car with your kit and enjoyed showing it off at the girls' pinewood derby activity night at the church. She went with an Elsa Frozen theme (not my choice :)). We wired lights to a separate tiny battery and they looked great. Thanks for your help!
Blazing Bus - Dusty Bradford
I built a school bus with a small brushless ducted fan and some RC parts. I made it so that the back door was hinged for the exhaust. The first run was unpowered and completely unnoticed, but it still posted a time of 3.4 seconds. When I turned on the fan, it raced across the finish line with a time of 2.2 seconds! It weighed less than 4.5 ounces.
