D-Day is coming this Friday. My 7th grader (Josh) is doing Co2 cars for a final school project with his class. I told him that I did those in 7th grade too. So, he ends up asking the teacher if I can make one so he can race against me. So the duel of the ages will be upon us soon. Here is Josh working on his car made from Bass wood. I made mine from Paduak, Maple and Walnut lamination. (I was trying to go for a ‘cool’ factor).
So the little booger doesn’t paint, he finds these really cool full page decal of the USA flag. I lost the cool factor!
His car weighs 3.7 ounces, mine weighs 3.8 ounces. I thought about trimming more off the back, but decided it would be more fun to race them this close in weight. (Secretly, I hope he wins.)
