I built the "Beast" for the father's division at my sons Pinewood derby race. The proportion is a little off due to having to use regulation wheel locations and length of wood block. Due to the amount of wood I used (3 blocks)I had to hollow out the bottom like a canoe so my wieght position was not desired. Ended up 2nd overall, my son's Den master beat me by .007 of a second (with a snake shaped car)of over and average of 3 races. My time was 2.647 (If that means anything) I do not believe all pinewood derby tracks are the same.

My son and I will try to race this again tomorrow in my nephews den in the "OPEN" class :bum:

Thanx for all the complements, I wish I could have sent more time on it. I had only 2 weeks to build my son's pine car and at the last minute I decided to make one for me. It did get alot of looks at both events I took it too :biggrin2:
