Well, last night was the last time for Little Dude to run in the PWD.
He'll be going into BSA next year and they don't hold with that sort
He did a goodish job of being fussy and paying attention to details
this year and was rewarded with a First Place in his pack of fifty
The only really funny thing he did was using the wrong face on the
1500 grit sandpaper when he was polishing the wheels and axles. We
They raced three heats to get into the finals and then three heats in
They run on a forty foot wood track, with 35' 1 1/2" between the start
and finish lines.
His combined average for the six heats was 2.8103 seconds.
That compares to the youngster that was Second, at 2.8837 and the
Third Place finisher at 2.9063.
If the common wisdom that .008 seconds equals 1 inch, then he ran 9
3/16 inch faster, on average, than the next best car.
LD has learned a lot about taking pains doing this PWD stuff.
Now I want to hook him into designing and building a nice shelf to
house all his cars and bling.
