I just finished a car for the Pure Stock race this weekend. I have spent more time on this car than anything else I have ever built and I’m so dam frustrated with it. I put the Nellie Faye Style fenders on the car, 93SRG axles and some 2 gram wheels. I went through the same oil process that I used in the past. The car will run down the track decent, faster than an old graphite car, but slower than an oil car I sent to the Mid-America car. “Car avg. time 3.0224.” When I put it on my tuning board it is only rolling 4’ and then comes to stop. Every other car picks up speed as it rolls to the end. I am going to tinker with it tonight to see if in can fix it. If I can’t can someone take a look at it after the races and let me know what I did wrong? I am new to the oil and rail runners so I’m not sure what I screwed up.
I would be happy to look at it, if you send it to me. It most likely would not make it to the race on time.
Also the 2 gram wheels are not legal for Pure Stock, The R-170 wheels are the wheels that I produce that are legal for Pure Stock. Give me a call and I will try to help you out before you send it. I think I might have some ideas.

Have you done a slow roll to see if you have any fenders rubbing on the track. Also check to see if you any wheels rubbing the fenders. If the car comes to a complete stop on your tuning board it is typically something rubbing or you need to check the cant on your FDW.

I’m not sure what the problem was. I re-prepped the axles and put the new 2 gram wheels from Evolution on and it worked great. I did have to replace my DFW axle. I over bent it and damaged the wheel removing it.
