Thanks for the tips.  It is a lot of fun to see your son glowing with excitement as he enters the championship race.  I feel giving him a realization that a little extra, maybe even tedious work, does lead to success is a nice lesson for life!   It was certainly worth the $5.95!

I just wanted to thank you for the best information I've ever paid for.  It was worth every penny!  My son Ian and I raced today and he would have taken first (caught on the starting gate in one heat... caused him a trophy, but he took first by a large margin in all other heats) and I took first in the adult open class.  Great speed tips that I NEVER would have come up with on my own! 

More importantly though, we had a great time doing this together, and thanks to you, we were competitive too!
