Thanks again Joe! We will be back next year!??

    Funny story... Won every race.. except one were another cars wheel fell of an interfered.. The race winner was determined by Average time.. so the fastest car did not win.. The only car that beat this was the super car also bought from your site.. In the unlimited division this came in 2nd and the other car come first.. This car beat our track record.. then the super car beat that..

    Pleasant Surprise!!!!
    Didn't have time to make a car this year. 3.08-3.11's over 8 runs on a rough 32" wooden track. Beat the eventual winner in one out of 3 races. (each lane influenced the final time) Took 1st in class and 3rd overall in a 50 car field. Outstanding job!!

    Great car
    Car looks too good. Let your 8 year old paint over the high gloss finish and add stickers to personalize it. Gives them ownership of the car.

    Awesome car
    This car is awesome fast and looks great. We won 1st place in our Pack race. Our District race wasnt as good. Im not sure if it was the track or what but our car raced progressively worse on each run. Overall, this was an awesome car and highly recommend it.

    Great car 2nd overall place
    My kids did their own cars for the last 4 years and the car was always dead last on every heat. I felt disadvantaged with families that take these derby's very seriously. With this car we won 2nd place overall on our pack. My kid is very very happy

    This car is great! Raced against 48 other cars and the race wasn't even close...it was still building up speed on the flat part of track and was so fast it went off the end of the track!! We had to put a pillow to catch it each time!
