1 plate TxW Alloy long

   

The Fastest Tungsten in the World is TxW Tungsten
Almost ALL the top 10 Professional Racers run TxW Tungsten

( Based on speed records on a national track)

 

If you want a fast car, you must put the biggest engine available

behind the back axle.

 

That means pure 99.95% tungsten from TxChemist

 

or TxW Tungsten Alloy from TxChemist.

 

Bigger engine = better center of gravity = higher speed.

 

Specifications:
  • One TxW Alloy plate 0.7 oz.  
  • (0.095″x0.5″x1.72″)
  • Super Tape is child safe and enough tape is included to attach all your  weights

 

You are Buying:

 

One (1) TxW Alloy long plate

    

Super Tape ( 6-8 “) enough to attach all your plates to bottom of car.

 


Features:  

    • Each plate is designed to tile the full width of the car to optimize your center of gravity.

           

    • This means TxW plates will cover the wood better than ordinary plates and will make your car faster.

           

    • The tape is industrial strength, but safe for your child to do their own weight assembly

           

  • If you are limited on time, money, or tools, or just want the fastest car, this is what you need

 

Super Tape
    • The tape is safe for skin, has no harmful odors, safe for eyes, even if you eat it you will not be hurt. (from MSDS of tape manufacturer)

 

    • This tape is industrial strength and used in manufacturing buses, RV’s, and cars as a replacement of riveting and spot welding.

 

    • It can hold metal to clean wood unbelievably strong, but can be held and worked with by your youngster without sticking to skin or causing any problems.

 

    • Once you pry an object off, your fingers can peel the tape off cleanly leaving no residue.

 

  • Once you try this tape you will never want to use screws or epoxy or messy glues again.
How to place your weights (no tools edition)

           

Weigh your car + wheels and determine which plates,nickels,pennies or paper clips will be required to get right at 5 oz.

Place two strips of super tape across the back of the car as shown in the photo.

Start with plate #1 ( the heaviest if you buy a Council or District Kit, in the Pack Kit all the long weights are the same.

Place #1 as far back but even with the back of the car and press into the tape. Follow up with the other heavy plate ( you can tel by weighting or balance on a ruler used as a scale) if you have the Council winner

The other kits have identical long weights remaining, so place them all (2,3,4,5) and then place the small weights 6&7 last.

         
           
The Pack Winner kit has 5 identical TxW Alloy plates + 2 small TxW Alloy plates for a total of 7 plates      
           
The District Winner has plate #1 super heavy 99.95% tungsten and the other 4 large plates are TxW Alloy +2 small plates      
     
The Council Winner has both plates #1 & #2 99.95% tungsten and then 3 TxW Alloy plates + 2 small plates
           

 

How to place your weights if you have tools  

The 0.25 oz small weights would normally be placed last, with the larger plates 1-5 placed closest to the back of the car.

The Pack Winner kit has 5 identical TxW Alloy plates + 2 small TxW Alloy plates for a total of 7 plates  

The District Winner has plate #1 super heavy 99.95% tungsten and the other 4 large plates are TxW Alloy +2 small plates  

The Council Winner has both plates #1 & #2 99.95% tungsten and then 3 TxW Alloy plates + 2 small plates

Moving the back axle closer to the back of the car is a tremendous advantage. It allows both increased speed and stability

Cut a notch in the back of the car 1/2″*1/4″*1.75″ as shown below . NOTE: Back axle has been moved closer to back of car. This allows for both a faster and more stable car. You do not have to modify where the axle goes if you choose not to. Just be aware that you could put too much weight behind the axle and the car will flip over or run very unstable and slow. To keep this from happening, make sure you have at least 1/2″ in front of the back axle as the center of gravity. To get this, you may need to move a few weights up closer to the nose.           

    1. Start with the two heaviest 99.95% plates if you have any plus one TxW Alloy plate for a total of three plates to be placed in the notch. If you have the Pack Winner Kit, all the long plates are TxW Alloy and any three will do.

       

 

    1. Now either use bits of super tape to stick all three plates together in a stack, or if you have some Aluminum tape , use some to encase all three.

       

 

  1. Place a bit of super tape in the bottom of the notch and attach your stack to the wood. You can also add a bit of tape to the side wall of the wood and push the stack into it. You can also carefully run two strips of tape across the bottom and over the edge and across the bottom of the notch to hold all weights.

    • A test car was set up to run with 5 different weight systems available on the internet.

 

    • The Fastest Tungsten is the “pure” (99.95%) TxW plates. Available in both the Council Winner Kit and the District Winner Kit

 

    • Very close in speed is the low cost TxW Alloy that we are selling here in the Pack Winner Kit.

 

    • Pinecar screw on is next

 

    • Then  ABC screw on

 

    • All the Zinc alloy stick on parts are very slow- save your money

 

    • Tungsten cylinders are also not shown as NO Pro racer would slow his car down with a design that could use cylinders

 

    • Now that these lower cost plates are available, why would you even bother with slower cylinders, zinc or ordinary small plates?

 

 

    • This TxW Alloy Kit is priced way below all other tungsten plate suppliers.

 

    • How can TxW bring  high quality tungsten alloy plates to the market at such low prices?

 

    • Years of Pinewood racing and weight design coupled with a sintering process modified for TxChemist products has allowed for breakthrough low pricing on these parts.

 

    • It may take a few years, but at sometime in the future, ALL plates will be modified to copy the TxW designs.

 

               
    • Here we have laid out 3 different tests on our test car.

 

    • The top car shows 5 TxW Alloy plates weighing 3.5 oz.

 

    • The double arrow blue shows the 5 plates and the center of gravity for just the plates in the blue line in the middle of the blue arrow.

 

    • It also shows 4, 99.95% pure tungsten plates weighing 3.5 oz.

 

    • Those are shown by the black double arrow covering 4 plates  with the center of gravity of those plates the black line in the middle.

 

    • On the bottom car we see 7 plates of Pinecar incremental weights ( plus a little plate to hit 3.519 oz.).

 

    • The center of gravity of the 7 plates in the green line at the middle of the green double arrow.

 

    • It is easy to see that the TxW Alloy plates center of gravity is about 1/4″ farther from the back of the car than the 99.95% plates.

 

    • We can also see that the Pinecar weights will be about 3/8″ farther away than the TxW Alloy plates center of gravity.

 

    • That is why no matter what skills you have building these cars, you can get the weight correct and make your car faster than ANY other weights on the market.

 

    • And, you do not have to worry about your boy or girl attaching these weights with our child safe tape.

 

    • Photo of test car on curved area of track with one back wheel removed so you can see how plates will NOT drag on track if done correctly.

 

    • Moving the back axle location can increase both your speed and stability. see TxChemist.com for help.

 

    • If rules or tools will not allow that, then be sure and sand or cut a little angle of wood off the back of the car so that first plate will be angled up away from the track, or it might drag.

 

    • All the other plates will be fine, especially if you use the enclosed TxW Super Tape.

 

    • Be sure and drill or place the axle close to the bottom of the car to keep the weights up high.

 

    • If you can not get axles in except up higher, sand the bottom off to make room for the weights.

 

    • Photo of a 200 gram test weight held up with just 2 small strips of super tape.

 

    • We let the weight sit on the tape for 1 day.

 

    • We then flipped the block on the side and clamped it to see how long the weight will hold without slipping or pulling off.

 

    • It has not moved in months and is not likely to ever move unless we pry it off.

 

    • This tape will hold your weights even if the stop section of your track is a little rough.

 

    • Bring a screwdriver if you need to remove weight as your fingers will not likely be able to remove anything.

 

    • The tape is safe for skin, has no harmful odors, safe for eyes, even if you eat it you will not be hurt. (from MSDS of tape manufacturer)

 

    • This tape is industrial strength and used in manufacturing buses, RV’s, and cars as a replacement of riveting and spot welding.

 

    • It can hold metal to clean wood unbelievably strong, but can be held and worked with by your boy or girl without sticking to skin or causing any problems.

 

    • Once you pry an object off, your fingers can peel the tape off cleanly leaving no residue.

 

    • Once you try this tape you will never want to use screws or epoxy again.

 

    • Fine tune with Nickels 5 grams, pennies 2.5 grams, paperclips 0.5 gram.
