Cool boxes. Good luck!

And all other things being equal, more weight in the rear (.5 oz) will win every time.

Thanks! We were sweating it a little on the fenders but they ended up working great.

I think final weight might have been closer to about .2 +/- difference now that I have slept. Still today, his car was faster consistently than mine. I don't know how long the track was but he was running 3.13xx very consistant. I think I had one 3.14, but ran mid 3.15xx to low 3.16xx's on all my runs.

Lucas won both the Tiger and Pack Finals with his car. He put in a lot of work on his car and I'm sure proud of him!

I'm very grateful for Derby Talk and all its contributors! I've learned so much from the experts here, and without doubt that knowledge helped us build a better car!
