Well just got back from the new derby shop in NC called to see if they had the pro ultra lights after looking for 5 min they said they did drove the 50 miles there and they only had the 1.8 grams not impressed with this shop so far maybe they will get there stuff together soon I was hoping it was going to be like derby monkeys shop or at least someone there that knew something about pinewood derby racing they said the track might be there in Jan.
Sorry to hear of your trip. it is going to take a little time to get the hobby shops up to speed with what is going on, but we are excited that some are coming on board and giving it a try with a track and hi-performance items. Remember, for a lot of years all these people had to sell is Pine Car decorations so they are learning. Also, the hobby shops are more in tune to selling PWD in Jan and Feb, so Dec is a little early for them, again they are learning that people like us are working for weeks to prepair a car not just a few night right before the race.
Also, i would suggest you speak with Brent, the owner, he is a great guy and would love to hear your input.
Thanks Racer X I was hoping everything would come together for them but the first post on here made it sound like it was up and running with a track and all the goodies. Then after calling first and making sure they had what I was after and them confirming it I made the trip there and they did not have the wheels that's what got me a little upset.I do wish the best for them and I hope they get everything straighten out.
