Pine Car Derby
Well, Duncan now knows the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Last year he took first place overall with his car. This year, he probably came in dead last.
The car looked great this year. It was completed a full two days before the derby. Last year we were working on the damn thing the night before and the car was ugly as all get out. But this year's car did not have its wheels adjusted properly because every time it would go down the track one of the wheels evidently wasn't on straight and the car pulled just enough to one side to slow it down considerably.
This was quite a disapointment to Mike because he even purchased a special tool to help with the wheel alignment. I think he needs to reassess using that freakin' tool because last year the car ran perfectly. Ah well, it was probably just a fluke.
Better luck next year I guess.
