Re: Microwizard Crate Build

My 2 timers are stored in our house where the heat and humidity is close to the same year around. Only I can get to them. They are not in a case. Knowing where they are helps me sleep better.

Re: New builder needing help

Would you please send a picture of what this weight looks like and also with 6 of them installed in a car. At what point does the car balance with the wheels and axles on it?
Where did you buy these weights and how much did they cost?

Re: New builder needing help

It surprises me you' re allowed to have an extended wheel base but they put the "4 on the ground" rule back. That's disappointing.
