LOL, the Pinewood Derby has been the bane of my existence for the past three years. Everytime I think “this is finally the year” me and my son have a real fast car, only to once again find ourselves solidly in the middle of the pack....oh well, next year is going to be THE YEAR!
I need to see that. I had to resist the urge to meddle with my son’s construction of his car when he was a Cub.
That’s why I always advocated an “open” race after the official derby.
That allowed the dads to build and race their own cars. Helped to cut down on dad built cars for the Cub races.
