I'm not sure what you mean by that.
You know, I am going to chalk it up to user error. I am sorry about that. I compared the mobile version to Tapatalk and the menus match up. Again, I apologize for my error.

Re: Herbie

I do not see pictures either.

Tapatalk and Photobucket for me. I use Tapatalk 99% of the time when browsing forums. However, Derby Talk seems to be missing sections on Tapatalk. I usually use the "unread" tab to see updates and new posts.

Re: We need to be efficient

Bill, that would be perfect. Can I add that it should also allow you to drill starter holes in axle slots? Our Council still requires you to use the axle slots.

Re: Tungsten for sale

Tried sending a PM, but not sure it went through. Are the canopies 3.5 oz?

Re: Axle prep...

Thank you. I never thought to check Wal-Mart. It looks like my local one has paper up to 2500.

Re: Axle prep...

That axle looks great! Is the coning all done by hand with a file?

Also, where are you buying the fine grit paper from? Locally, 800 is the finest I can find.

Re: Opinions Wanted: Critique my Rail-riding explanation

Thank you, VK. It seems bent axles might be best for a beginner. A few years ago, when my son was a Tiger, we built a crude car that ran good. He won districts for the Tiger/Wolf class. However, he got spanked by a RR for overall champ. That was the only time I've seen a RR at districts. Unfortunate...

Re: Opinions Wanted: Critique my Rail-riding explanation

A little off topic, but is it better to bend axles or drill holes? I really want to try this, but would need to purchase tools to do so.

Re: What's the most current 'Q-Tip' brand for Wheel Bore Polishing?

Is Novus 3 the same as wax? In the past, we've only burnished with graphite. Last year, we used wax and then graphite. Thinking about using Novus 2 and wax this year before burnishing with graphite.

Re: Derby Timer Review

Nice looking unit. Do you know the pricing for these? I had sent an email through their website a month ago and never got a response.
