Hammer Head Part Deux

Post by Gear Dog » Fri Jan 22, 2010 7:53 am

Well after my son's first car rolled off the table and broke right at the axle I decided to build him another rather than repair it. The design was just a template I made with scrap from last years car. When he found it he said it looked like a Hammer Head Shark and wanted his car to look like that. After the fall I tried to convince him to eliminate the notch but he wouldn't budge. I even told him that if I moved the wheels further forward it would be faster. But it's his car and he got what he wanted. So this time I added a little hump close to where the axles would go for added stregnth. Here is a pic of it drying last night, I'll get some pic's with results from tonights race.
