Tips & Hints
Many of the BSA "nails" that come in your kit are crooked. Chuck each axle in your drill and spin them. If the axle looks blurry as it spins, that axle is crooked. Replace crooked axles or consider getting an Axle Press Tool to straighten crooked axles.
Need a little extra weight on weigh in but didn't bring extra weight with you? Use a coin! Here are the weights of US coins in ounces: penny .11 oz, nickel .17 oz, dime .07 oz, quarter .18 oz
If your block is cracked, don't panic! The only problem with a cracked block is if the crack is near the axle, which can cause the axle to move. Random cracks in safe areas can simply be filled with wood filler.

Wow, we did it! Dad, I'll never forget this night.

We placed an amazing 2nd out of 28 cars. We only lost to first place by half an inch. Our car ran consistently all night. We won 2nd place overall! You will be our first stop next year!
Thanks for helping out with these orders. I appreciate the quality of your customer service and will definitely recommend your company to others in my son's pack. Cheers!

We got a "Most Realistic" for the Humvee and an 4th place with the "wedge." You would have thought my seven-year-old twin grandsons had won college scholarships! I was a hero. Thanks, again. I'll probably be back next year, Lord willing.
