Some video samples are up - click into the "Hosted Racing League Info" on the www.pwdracing.com site.
We are trying to figure out the best size to post. The best quality is the large 70 MB file of all the races, but even with a high speed connection it takes a long time to download (30 minutes or so). The small size file loses a lot of video quality.
We are working on breaking the big video into each Division Race - like the 15 MB Hot Rod 66 race is.
We also have some new technology to use at the February race that should make better video quality and easier to work with videos. ;D
The race went well Today. I had a few technical difficulties to start off - problems with projector. Then the computer wouldn't communicate with the printer (worked fine at home- had to hand write the schedule for the Boy Scouts running the races - had about 54 cars ??). Then after the 8th heat we had trouble with sunlight coming through a window and made the timer not work .
From there on out it was smooth sailing - kids had a great time -some pretty fast turn around time for heats (lowest was 14 sec) -averaged 20-40secs.
I am really proud of my boys. They worked hard on their cars and their effort paid off. 1 & 2 in Pack. I sent some info from the race for Warren to post with the other Pack Races on the web site -Look for Pack 111. The track was set up at 35'. My car "Dum Dum" (Raced in first PWD Racing Race) took first in the Open Class.
Here are some photos from this Cub Scout Derby Season:
Ben's (Wolf) car took first(green one) Sam's (Bear) took second (red rail car)
