Genuine Awana Grand Prix wheels - lathed to perfection

Awana Ultra Lite Wheels
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.

Only $19.95 (set of 4)

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.

Joe,
The Awana Grand Prix race was last night. My son took 1st, my daughter took 2nd, and a friend of ours son took 3rd.

All three cars had your wheels and axles.
Everyone asked how we did it 2 years in a row. I stated it's all in the wheels, axles, and in the weight. I'll send the photos via email along with the testimony.

Thanks for the great work you do with those Awana SPEED wheels!
Thanks again, Gary Wagner



Hi Joe,
Here is a picture of my ten year old son's car. It won 1st for design in the boys division of our church's First Bible Baptist Church Awana Grand Prix. The car is aptly called "THE LOUISVILLE SLUGGER". We would LOVE IT, if you put his car on your website!

Thank-you so much for your website! We learned alot from all the ideas and the great information. This was our first Pinewood Derby and we has a BLAST!!!! Thanks again!

God Bless You,
Dawn and Ryder

Pinewood Pro!
I received my Speed Wheels on Thursday just in time for the Awana derby on Friday.  
We won 8 out of 9 total races and took first overall in the speed competition! 
There were a lot of experienced racers there who couldn't believe how fast our car was in
our first derby.  Alex and I thank you.  I don't think he has stopped smiling since Friday...

      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.

      lubes Tip

      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.
