I would like to swap it for a tubular one and tubular a-arms. I can find a-arms but want to make sure I buy good ones. If ...

Re: SCCA pinewood derby?

I took the rules to the max. When they inspected it I had to prove everything was legal. Polish axles, reamed wheels, turned wheels to remove mold seams. Weight was .4 over so it would round down. They said we took it to far. Funny thing is she did most of the work with my research and direction.

STM for the lotus clone

I am seriously thinking of running STM next year. Get me some of the 245 rival 15". The car will be street legal by then. I was wondering if anyone running that class had a problem with it before I buy tires. Thanks.
