That was mesmerizing. I would've loved that as a kid.

That is awesome! Gives me an idea. My Son and I are big into Pinewood Derby, it'd be cool to make a track kind of like that for all his "retired" Pinewood cars. We went undefeated last year, and my wife made me sabotage our car this year because she didn't like all the drama last year.

Haha. I feel you on the Pinewood Drama. Who knew some of those parents took it so seriously. My brother and I won every year (took turns winning somehow. lol) And the drama brews quickly. How quickly it turns from "Lets have fun" to "You cheated and I'll find out how" haha.

The really cool part about this year is the fact that we hosted a big "Pinewood" party at my house and some of the dads were just clueless. The car that I cut out and weighted actually won first place and went to district. The dad came up to me and thanked me and told me he felt bad. I just smiled and said "bro, it's all in the wheels, and you did that".
