Re: Weight bias Equation

I'm sorry if I have caused confusion. RRR races AWANA involved in his church. I know of no other AWANA race then the one with his church. He and his racer then joined a league so they could continue to race. I think races are held every month. RRR likes oil. If memory serves me, Eagle likes oil. Is ...

Re: Weight bias Equation

Gentlemen, if I might back up here for a moment. A few years back some of us wanted to race against our good friend "Sporty" who built very fast scout cars with his son and was frequently on Derbytalk with his vast knowledge. We signed up for Adult Racing at the Mid America race and at that time the...

Re: Weight bias Equation

My test is to get the results of a car using a .087 dfw nail and the same car using a .093 nail. I already have the car which is Commodore Perry District legal. Lube is Hob-E-Lube graphite. I use the car for demonstration at workshops. The tungsten weights are exposed to show the scouts the differen...

Re: Weight bias Equation

I believe the .093 causes more friction because the wheel cannot straighten out as much. With only .004 total clearance the wheel is immediately steered into the rail and held in that position. The wheel is now skidding down the track at a greater angle then if it were allowed to straighten out more...

Re: Weight bias Equation

I have 3 - Triton T2 scales from Maximum Velocity, $19.95. Calibration weight is extra. I have one calibration weight. These scales are not used in workshops or races. They are strictly for back up. For Workshops and races I prefer the scale from Hodges Hobby house, $29.95. The scale comes with the ...

Re: Weight bias Equation

I have no answer for the question but because of the specs on the car I would like to go Off Topic a bit and ask a couple of questions. 1. Is the 4 3/4" wheelbase because of rules or is it specifically about Physics? If it's about Physics, other then Doc Jobe, who decided this is the best for speed ...

Re: Those Crazy Lazy Hazy Days of Summer

Mr. Ratrodsrule1, This is the most difficult thread I have ever tried to help with. You commented you are lazy which is perfectly fine. That's your choice. However, you then used the word Rejex. The fact that you even know the word Rejex suggests to me you are not lazy. Putting aside the word lazy I...

Re: 2 - Lane 42' Best Track with Timer For Sale

Re: Best Stock Unmolested BSA Axles

I would guess BSA nails Made in China (If you can find any) with the Official BSA sticker on the tube and Maximum Velocity where they used the actual BSA nail before doing a bit of work on them.

Re: Homemade Concentricity Gauge

Did you ever get a BSA wheel bore to go over a pin gage larger then .0965 without intentionally doing something to the bore?

Re: May 2 Coronavirus Sucks Race

Thank You. That will make it easy for everyone. I'm thinking there are thousands of AWANA racers that might have always wondered how they would do against a scout car. I realize the wheel and axle rules are very lenient but it could be lots of funny anyway. Perhaps a lot of the racers have never had...
