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 cubs.
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 corrected that.
They raced three heats to get into the finals and then three heats in the finals.
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.
