Pinewood Progress...

Well, we are getting closer to going racing...





NOte the use of carbon fiber.

NOTE: I think all the specs in the picture are actually particles floating around the room from the clear coat. I had just sprayed them.

Looking good....it is "legal" right? Do they allow carbon fiber nowadays? Lots of graphite on the wheels, right?

wheels and axles as smooth as possible, and installed with proper alignment abd weight low and to the back are the most important. paint and body shape may look cool but wont help speed much, if any, unless you want to win the design contest.

I suddenly saw the Team Portis car at the end of the derby track. Then I saw Vin Diesel shouting "NOS", and the little derby car blows up.
