      Tips & Hints

      If you have a bad wheel and you don't have time to replace it, Raise that Wheel so it doesn't touch the track. Since it doesn't touch the track, it won't have any negative affect on your car's speed.

      Nyoil stays on your axles throughout the race, unlike powdered graphite that blows off every time your car goes down the track. This gives Nyoil coated axles a speed advantage if your car keeps racing.

      building Hint

      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.
