You will go home with a car that is ready to race . . . that very day . . . and we have had some families come in to build a car to race that day.  We don't recommend it, but it can be done.  If you (hopefully) have some time left before  your race, we recommend you pick up some graphite to lubricate your wheels and axles.  We have really good graphite, and we have some great graphite.  The more you work patiently on your car and your wheels and axles the faster it will go.




          Best Quote Yet . . 
"Bring the child home    now!"
​     overheard from one dad's cellphone  (2006)                      
The internet ate the old website.  Things just really got weird, and it went away and took a whole shoebox-full of great comments and memories from different families andtheir time in the shop, so we're starting over right here with a comment made last week (October 2013).


"I have great news! Jorge and Nathan's car won for the fastest car! Jorge just found out this morning at work. It beat out a lot of cars, not sure how many, but there were a lot. One car from all of the . . . offices all over the country was entered. All the offices voted on the best looking car and unfortunately they didn't win that category. In Jorge's office everyone was very impressed. They loved the design, the colors, the shine, the name. It was all great. The VP of my husband's office was impressed. There were lots of different styles, but in the end, the car that you worked on with my guys with took home the most important prize. They took the title from a guy who has been building derby cars for a while and has won the last few years. 

So a huge thank you for the work you did and for helping my husband and son. The really enjoyed their project together and I am sure you will see them at your place again to build another one.
