Need Advice on Prepping for Districts

Post by ScoJo » Wed Mar 27, 2013 7:00 am

My cub won his pack race (that's the good part!). Unfortunately, after the race I found him pushing his car on the floor with his friends (boys will be boys). The floor was a carpeted gym floor.

Should we be concerned about any damage or debris in the wheel hubs? The axles of his car were in the slots (pack rule). They were glued in following alignment. Not sure how hard he might have been pushing down on the car during the floor runs, but the axles are bent (we run a pretty standard three on the floor rail rider).

Should we maybe blow out the wheels with compressed air before relubing? We will be re-checking the alignment on the board that we use.

Is there anything else we can do to make sure we're not damaged in any way?
