Well this was my brothers last year as a cub scout and I always make my own car to enter for the fun of it in the outlaw class...
Anyways, I always did horriable, but it was still fun. i decided it was time for redemption...

That is sweet, but I wonder if it would beat one of my pine wood cars as it went undefeated for like 6 years (1 year was when I raced it, the rest for when my dad did in the outlaw class). lol

Of course it wouldn't stand a chance, but I can't wait to see your car go.

I coulcn't help but LMFAO, that car blew the others out of the water. The best part was that your car was at the finnish line before the other cars were even off of the ramp. Very Happy

Lol... You should have seen it in the middle lane... The other cars were lucky to make it to the finish line because of the amount of air it was pushing LMAO, the look on the scout master's face was priceless!

That's great! A gravity racer that doesn't need gravity for acceleration.

It actually isn't so bad, jut 1.2 ounces over weight (6.2oz) but my goal is to lighten it up as much as i can Cool

I am shocked they let you run it being that it is over 5 oz's.

Also intead of just making it lighter, give it an aerodynamic profile so it can go that hunderth of a second faster. lol
