That's the spirit Bob ! Cool

 

--------

 

All proxy cars in house as of Monday 11/20 made test passes. They all go down the track, some faster than others and some way faster than all.

No on track damage to any of the cars. My Lunar launched the glue and won 'hit the wall hard award'. :victory:

 

"No Time" or speed, the program got hosed shocked.png  and the staging lites wouldn't go out. BP said he'll be all over the fix tomorrow smiley.png

 

Tom, sorry...your cars got beat to **** on the trip, most of the formally glued parts are in the 'box of work'. One locked up due to no 5/40 nuts against the wheels. the flag weights were striped out and fell of.. what a ride.

Oh ... AND a WHITE GUIDE FLAG too. :dash2:

 

Foamy, David, Floyd, PE, George ... ya'll fine

 

BadBill and I did the testing and the best agreed procedure under these circumstances will be.

 

No-Bars cars - Clean track, clean tires, .. Roll cars on cardboard, Naptha on rears, wet bleach box burn-out then across the line,  Wipe track, stage.

 

Bars cars - Full glue roll-out

Hi Paul,

 

That's a 46 gram lead weight up front.

 

Machined it out of a large blob of lead into a cute little "briefcase full of blues."  :sun_bespectacled: 

 

I'm hoping it will keep the front end down!

 

About a 50/50 weight distribution.

I use brass blocks on my index/bracket cars.

1/2 x 3/4 x 1" block is 50-ish grams with 2 2-56 mounting holes.

...and sometimes that is not enough...

Unbelievable bang for the buck. Imagine if they had a good brush set-up.  :o

 

Pitt Man ... kicked-a$$ with that 503 Chevy named 'Lumpy'.   :victory:

 

WTF was that TV show with Lumpy as a sidekick.... hmmm, having a 'senior moment.' Help ! :dash2:

 

Oh ... Leave it to Beaver:laugh2:  :laugh2:
