|Scout/ Youth Group Car Body
Overall length of finished car = 7″
Wood body is 1/4″ x 6 1/2″ x 1 3/4″
Wood is milled to fit all the available drill jigs.
This design can place the most tungsten behind the rear axle while maintaining a thin body and the correct amount of weight on the front wheel for stability.
This design has produced District and Council winners in some of the most competitive areas of the country.
Offset rear weight to allow the best possible balance on rear wheels.
The 1/4″ x 1/2″ x 1.75″ ledge created on the back of the car by the assembly of the top weight housing to the car can hold a variety of weights. The best value/ performance would be the Semi-Pro bar of 95% tungsten.
The top housing can be modified in a varity of ways to use the flat tungsten plates from TxW to maximize weight placement while minimizing car body thickness.
The Back axle can be placed where the Racer wants it to be. Best speed is 5/8″ from back of car, but if rules do not allow moving wood around, it can be drilled at the typical BSA block location.
The front axle can be placed where the Racer wants it to be including the exact distance from the back axle as found on the typical BSA block.
1/16″ should be removed from sides for correct alignment on track.
This lets the Dominant Front Wheel ride along the rail while keeping the back wheels centered and off the rail.
Cost of body no axle holes +3.5 oz tungsten alloy= $18.50
