    I have seen the Cub crying, his car the slowest. Been that dad to be sure. I have been starting to hold workshops for the parents in our pack that don’t have the tools or skill sets to build a fast or cool looking car. I recognize that some of the winning cars are not touched by the Cub until race day.
    This year I am going to set one of the cool, fast cars we have built. A car with clearly many hours in the build. I will then smash it with a hammer.
    Folks, this is a block of wood rolling fifty feet, plus or minus.
    There is nothing I can do the my boys cannot. While we do use a drill press and a chop saw from time to time, that is with my extreme supervision. Most builds, even fast ones, do not require these tools. The point is that they do the work from design to build with me and we are building fast cars.
    Remember three things…
    Smooth is fast
    Every surface has a purpose
    and most importantly…
