Pinewood Pro is proud to have helped manage pinewood derby car races, volunteered at pinewood derby races, donated to needy scouts, Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scouts every year since we started Pinewood Pro in 1999.
Pinewood Pro Donations
As a former Cub Scout and father of a Boy Scout (that's my son as a Cub Scout in the upper right after winning a Pinewood Derby race), we believe very strongly in the values of scouting and helping by giving back to Scouting and pinewood derby car racing.

Tips & Hints
Tungsten weights are ideal for pinewood derby cars. Tungsten is about 1/3 smaller than a zinc piece with the same weight. Therefore, you can pack Tungsten weights in a smaller area to optimize your center of gravity to maximize inertia giving you greater speed at the finish gate.
When adding Nyoil to your axles, "less is more"! Only use one or two drops per axle and wipe off any excess oil. The oil should not be run down your axle.
When painting with children, it is better to use a paint brush rather than spray paint because spray paint can cause vapors. If the child is spray painting, be sure to use a breathing mask and be in an open area.
With the help of your block, axes, wheels, and lube we went from last place 3 years running to 1st place overall. Thanks!- Roger
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!

This is my son's first Derby car as a Tiger Cub Scout. We had a lot of fun working on this together. Even though he didn't place it was a rewarding experience. Next year we plan to build something even more unique and perhaps a little more challenging. Thanks for a great web site!
