Frequently Asked Questions
I have decided to offer a service free of charge! I am willing to
time trial your car for free. I will take a video of it, post it on
you tube from opening the package, to putting it on the track
and running it 3 times to let you see what your car can do. I
will provide you with documentation of 4 points on our track.
Bottom of curve (Rate of acceleration). At mid track (rate of
deceleration). Finally, at finish line. What does this all mean?
It will tell you how your car compares to averages of
EVERYONE that we documented.
There is no contest. There is no Prize. There is just free
market data. Then you can do all that research on how to
improve start times or the straight away.
THE CATCH: All you need to do is provided funds for return
shipping. You want your car back, right? $6 pays for return
priority mail. Give me about 3 days to complete. Will give me
time to tape and post. Who else offers this service for free? I
charge NOTHING for this service. Just pay for return shipping!
Will I fix your car? I can tune your car if you would like.
$20/hr tuning with minimum 1 hr fee. Most cars are tuned in
this amount of time. 3-Wheel cars will be tuned to ride along
the guide rails. While 4 wheel cars will be tuned to run straight
down the center.
If I can't get the car to run to my minimium standards, then I
will email you recommendations and suggestions, i.e. wheel
and axle replacement, etc. Some cars are not fixable. Please
unerstand that. If you glue in your axles, I have no way of
fixing your car.
Break in process for an additional $10 in which we will
simulate running your car for approximately 350 races while
building up the proper layers of dry lube. Not some cheap
dusting. My technique will build real layers of lube while your
car is being tuned as those engineers proficient in tribology
explained to me. ! If you have lube of choice, please provide,
otherwise we will use Derby Dust™ Dry Lube as I feel it is one
of the best lubes out there.
Custom car work is best done outside of November-March
Build Seminars will begin in October. By appointment
only. 2nd and 4th weekends only! Please EMAIL ME for
more details. ALL KIDS are welcomed!
