Well Derby Day finally got here and we were fortunate enough to have a clean sweep. 1st place den and Pack as well as the dads race and two in our den I helped getting 2nd and 3rd.
I want to thank all the help I've had from MWD, 5Kids as well as everyone here that posts such great info and is always quick to answer questions.
That is some great looking digi camo duck tape sheets that I came across at my local hobby shop (Michaels) while looking for something else. The boy I was building this car with has two former Army parents so he loves anything camo/Army. It has backing making it much easier to cut before applying. Cool stuff especially when you're in a hurry on a car. They added the Army stickers. Thanks
DC the other car that got 2nd is a Pinecar skin(American flag). Id never used one before but it wasn't too tricky however the duck tape is MUCH easier to deal with and by far the fasted of all the cars to finish the surface.
Well we won District easily and a friends son from church we helped got second while our last years pack winner got third in district for a clean sweep. It was a big night for our Pack and a very fun time. Sure wish we had a council race but we don't have one here so I think I'm gonna start drilling some blocks for the future and maybe throw some fenders and faster wheels on this one for next months league race. I still think with a little change in prep I can reach sub 3 without fenders or lighter than 2.4g wheels. I think I'm gonna try it then if that doesnt work start shaping and painting the fenders Ive had for awhile.
