Tip to avoid wheel wobble

When your car wheel rubs against the axle head it can cause the wheel to wobble because the corner of the axle head is not a perfect 90 degrees. Cutting a groove directly under the axle head removes this source of wheel wobble. Cutting this groove is difficult to do by hand, but it can be done with an axle file. Our grooved Speed Axles and Pro Super Speed axles have this groove, exclusive to Pinewood Pro, cut directly under the axle head.

      My son's car won every heat it raced. Thanks again Joe. Your info is the best out there!
      - Gina



    • Everything was great! It was my son's first Kubcar race...approx 60 cars, and he took 1st place! He was so excited... Thanks again. Your Winning Pinewood Derby Secrets book really helped!
      - Glenn from Toronto



    • Using these axles and BSA speed wheels, we set a track record, went undefeated and won the pack championship. My son is thrilled to be heading to districts and let me tell you, a winning scout is a happy scout. Can't recommend these enough!
      - Natalie from CO



    • We took first in our pack of 60 cars. It was an amazing day. Thanks again Joe. Your info is the best out there!
      - Gina



    • I ordered a set of your BSA wheels and axels last minute on Wednesday for overnight delivery. Our race was on Friday. We finished in 6th out of 80 cars, and will be going to the Divisional Race! My son was never happier! Thanks again!
      - Steve from KY

    • My son--a first time Pinewood Derby participant--won his Den, Pack, and District championships thanks to Pinewood Pro! Also won design and workmanship awards. Thanks, Pinewood Pro!
      - Mike

    • This was our very first time building a Pine Derby car for Awana Club. We won first place in our age class and 3rd place over all the age classes up to high school. Thanks, Pinewood Pro!
      - Kirk

    • Great tips in your Winning Secrets book! This was our first year and my son was the overall District Winner. There were 250 racers at the District race so I'm guessing we have something like 1,000 scouts in our district. With that type of competition you need these tips to be competitive.
      - Mike from FL
