Tips & Hints
Before cutting your car, use a straight edge to draw lines down the center lengthwise and widthwise across your car. Then draw your car design template over these straight lines. The template and straight lines help guide your cutting on both sides of the car so everything is square.
Just like the pistons in an engine block, you want your axles to be tight fitting in the wheel bore, to reduce wheel wobble. If your Rules allow, use one of our slightly oversized Speed Axle or PRO Super Speed Axle.
Don't put a round peg (axle) in a square hole! Axle slots are square but your axles are round, making it difficult to get them to go in straight. Use a drill press or the PRO Driller to redrill the axle slot so you have a straight round hole to insert your axles
Thank you for all of the information. We had fun making the car! We're going on to the Regionals, as our car to 1st place in our den!
