Tips for the RA and boyscouts pine wood derby

You should always have some weight in the front of the car to make it pick up speed better than cars without weights in the front.

BUT DON'T HAVE ALL THE WEIGHT IN THE FRONT or it will beat the car down the slope but then it will slow down on the straight way and the other car will pass it.

But remember never put all the weights in one spot. you can't win a race by following a book, I tried it once and I came in last.
