Re: New cartridge
Im not sure about runout, but there is some wiggle in it for sure. I didn't tighten down the interstage coupler for the pics of spike. Maybe ill stick it on the rail (the launch pad) for another pic.
As Jim mentioned, the FAA stuff can be a pain. Once you have your foot in the door it sems to go a lot smoother though.
The car is definately short a pair of cylinders... but I wouldn't say its lacking in power. HP/weight ratio is pretty good. I had a simular discussion (cars/rockets) with a guy some time back who was convinced that his car was fast, and while he didn't think he could beat a rocket, he figured he could "give it a run for its money" after Icrunched the numbers for him, he realized that in a quarter mile race, even the little estes rockets will beat a top fuel dragster, and most of mine will be at the 1/4 mile mark before a top fueler breaks the 60 foot mark [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Gotta love that HP/weight ration.
