Nice work on the spreadsheet. Come on guys its toy cars surely you can give us your prize (secret)specs.
Knowing specs is way to sophisticated for my primitive mind to wrap around. Here's my specs:
Reach into the box, find a blue Slot.it spur gear, Does it fit?
Yup. Oh ya, that motor was pretty fast and the pinion gear already installed meshes pretty good.
Good thing cuz this motor has a splined armature so I don't even want to deal with changing gears.
Think I'll try it. How many teeth?
Dunno, I can't see good enough to count 'em. Rob the SCC rear wheels, tires & guide from last year's entry. Add a BUNCH of lead to the left side and hope to goodness that there aren't any road courses in the schedule this year. Better add some hot glue to the lead to ensure it'll stay in place over a seasons worth of racing. Add SCX Pro Nascar vacuform interior tray from last years entry. Add packaging tape to make sure that she'll stay in. Install the body leaving her plenty loose. Stagger the right side tires, front & rear, as far out as the rules allow.
Run the heck out of her around my Big D oval.
Don't bother turning on the timing system. If she sticks in one place on my track she's good 'nuff.
Add weight until she can get crossed up under braking into the turn 1 entry from the D section without barrel rolling. If she's stable here, she'll be stable anywhere this car is going to race.
Put a stamp on the box and mail her in. Cross fingers.
