We have a rental track that I've put a "pace car" into the kit to
prevent an empty lane during the races. The pace car is just the bare
kit, sharpie-enscribed "Ofishul Pace Car" (misspelling intentional),
sanding sealer, and wheels installed and axels hot-glued in place. Just
enough weight added to make sure it goes downhill.
I've had to ding a wheel to slow it down so it doesn't win. After 10
years of doing this the only two things that really make a difference
are gettign the weight as close to the 5 ounce limit as possible and
having the wheels straight.
