Pinewood Derby Failure

Usually our Pinewood Derby failures don't happen until the night of the race! This is our 9th derby car to build, and we tried to make it too small, too light, and too fast this time. Cracko - the wood split several times when driving the wheel's nails into place. I even drilled them out first. We just flew too close to the sun...

I think we have another week or 2 to come up with a new car - that or else polish up one of the other 8 around here underfoot... I think the car turned out pretty good, considering it was cut out with a hand saw, hammer, flat-head screwdriver, and razor!
