Genuine Awana Grand Prix wheels - lathed to perfection
Precision lathed and tuned.
All of the imperfections have been removed from these wheels while making them slightly lighter (they are 1.6g) for a fast start and lightning fast down the track.
All of the Official Awana Grand Prix markings remain.
The Hub is coned and the end squared, reducing friction when the wheel hits the car body.
The outside tread is trued, so your wheel is perfectly smooth reducting rotational friction,
The inside tread is trued removing imperfections and reducing wheel weight so your car has a faster start out of the gate,
The wheel edge is lathed flat to reduce friction when your wheel hits the track guide.
Net result is a precision tuned, FAST wheel
Important: Awana Speed Wheels are delicate, due to the spoke design. We strongly recommend using our Axle Inserter-Puller Tool so the wheels are not damaged when inserting or removing them.

What is the difference between Awana and Cub Scout Pinewood Derby?
The Awana Grand Prix pinewood derby wood block is the exact dimensions
(7"x1 3/4" x 1 1/4") as the Cub Scout pinewood derby block. This means that any of our pre-cut car blocks and car design plans will work for Awana Grand Prix cars.
Awana Grand Prix axles are slightly different than Cub Scout axles but
the dimensions are almost exactly the same. All of the Pinewood Pro axles will work in Awana cars, but read your rules carefully to be sure they are legal for your race.
Awana Grand Prix Wheels are the same diameter and the wheel bore (where the axle goes) is exactly the same as Cub Scouts, but the wheel design is totally different. Therefor, Awana racers must use Awana wheels and Cub Scouts must use Cub Scout (BSA) wheels.

Tips & Hints
Lighter wheels turn easier (they require less inertia). Lighten your wheels, as much as your Rules allow, which will give you a fast start out of the gate and faster speed down the track.
When lubing your wheels and axles, shoot graphite powder into the wheel bore, spin your wheels, and repeat. Do this over newspaper in your garage or outside the house.
