|The Boy Scouts Of America "Blastcar" Kit|
I figured this would be a great excuse to get my CNC router working again and cut out a "Cool" car. My CNC router had been out of commission for several months due to a major upgrade that hadn't been completed. More on that upgrade in another post.
You can see the standard kit contents in the two photos here. I have to admit I was a bit disappointed in the kit. It isn't much different than a pinewood derby kit except that the parts are larger and there is a pre-drilled hole in the wood block. I expected to see some kind of bearing, but no. I'll have to work on upgrading that later.
So, this project isn't so much about winning the race for me as it is a chance to use the engineering and manufactures tools I have developed through the years. Also, Don't be surprised if after all the time I spend on this project I don't end up winning the race.
