Very cool car! The blue LEDs worked out great with the Lightning theme, and I like how the fenders incorporate the lightning bolt theme. Is that some type of wrap material? Also, what are the specs.? Is it set up for speed?

Good luck at your Scout's final Derby!

You can check out our weighting setup in the Construction forum. I just asked a question there that I know you will have good advice on. DFW of .62 and COM of .68. I couldn't shave any more weight off to get the numbers more aggressive. The top is a pic off Google printed onto photopaper. The fenders are covered with pieces of that same picture. The paper gets epoxied on then glossy clear coated.

If we happen to qualify for Districts I'm tossing around the idea of ditching the front fenders for a more aggressive COM. It will kill me to grind those of though.

I love the blue on blue and double fenders. Hope she is as fast as she looks!
