Basically the rules are:
Gravity only, no springs, motors, etc.
Maximum weight 4.5 pounds.
Must use a Corvair valve cover in some form.
16" max length, 8" max width (don't make it 8" wide or it will rub the
No part of racer to hang over the starting gate.

The secret to winning is to have the least friction on your axles (Ball
bearings) and the lightest wheels possible.  A body at rest tends to stay at
rest.  Heavy wheels start slow.
