Today my son and I made the Pineywood Derby car for the District Race.
This is the second Pineywood Derby car that we have made this year.
The first one came in Second Place in the Pack Races.
But, guess what, that car didn't conform to the rules used at the District Pineywood Derby Race.
Had to make another car.
Good news is that this car is a little faster than the original car.
Bad news is that it's uglier than snot.
Ah well, sixty test runs on a 32' Piantedosi wood track, with a Fast Track timer, give an average of 2.253" per run.
Any of you guys know if this is in the ballpark for me and my nine year old not to be shamed in front of our peers?
Other good news is that the boy is starting to get real comfortable with the drillpress.
He even took a few swipes at the bandsaur, without hardly lookin' away from the cutline.
He's starting to like the shop real good.
I believe I about got this young fish hooked.
