    When I saw the year and model of this car on the title of the post I thought, who in their right mind would chop and customize this year and make of car! I clicked on your post only to find WOW! If you aren't in your right mind, stay right where you are. That build is beautiful! Very nice work.

    http://apr.boards.net/thread/760/2014-april-super-pro-modified I think this link will work.............this is a video of the super pro modifieds......these are the fastest gravity fed cars on the planet! You have to realize this video is in slow motion and the racers use this feature to evalute their cars and make the changes for the next race. This is really how it looks in real time. http://apr.boards.net/thread/799/2014-super-pro-modified

    These are not MODELS but the extremes of the PWD hobby
    These two are not models, but I am posting them to show you the exteme in the Hobby of Pinewood derby racing. These are the Super Pro Mods or Unlimited cars. They have two flanged minature bearings per wheel. Mine I only run the bearings on the rear wheels and use a .022 diameter needle axle on the DFW. The initials stand for Dominant Front Wheel. This wheel is used to gently steer the front end of the car into the rail thus keeping the two rear drive wheels off the rail so speed is not scrubbed off. The straighter the car runs the faster the time. I know it sounds crazy, but this is how it's done. Wheels weigh .8 grams without bearings and are made from acrylic. A good bearing car will travel the 42' in 2.8 seconds and some change. A door slammer will run around 2.954.......that is the current record held by me. Hope this explains somewhat how this PWD thing works.

    Cheers,
    BSB

    Door Slammers are not a fast as a conventional Pinewood Derby car. Too much body to push through the air. Believe it or not aerodynamics plays a big part in speed even on a 42 foot long track!

    Unfortunately I cannot give you a tutorial on building one ot these. I am in competition, and I build mine totally different than the rest of the racers. Showing you how I do it would not be good for me! I can tell you I use a thin piece of wood for the frame and a custom made motor/rearend (weight and axle holder)
