Blastcar Racing for Boy Scouts


fast blastcar

Blastcar is a CO2 powered car for Boy Scouts, whereas Cub Scouts race pinewood derby cars.

Blastcar is similar to a pinewood derby car in that the scout gets a pine wood block, 4 wheels and 4 axles to build a car, but the similarity stops there.


Blastcar Pro, a sister site to Pinewood Pro, gives you every thing a Boy Scout needs to have fun designing, building and racing a winning CO2 powered Blastcar.


Below are a few Blastcar speed products you will find on Blastcar Pro. Visit Blastcar Pro for help and details about Blastcar racing products.

Blastcar Wheels

Like pinewood derby race cars, you want your blastcar wheels to be light and precision tuned so your car starts fast, goes far and rolls straight.

Unlike pinewood derby, BSA rules allow you to modify your Blastcar wheels. Our ultra-light Blastcar Wheels are lathed AND drilled to perfection, with the added bonus of graphite-coating on the hubs using Blastcar Pro's exclusive perma-coating technique that has proven results for pinewood derby cars.

Blastcar Axles

The official BSA Blastcar axles are actually screws and they are much bigger than pinewood derby axles. But like pinewood derby, polished blastcar axles are essential for making your blastcar as fast as it can be. Blastcar Pro adds 2 grooves to reduce wheel wobble and decrease axle friction for a high-performance axle.

      Tips & Hints

      Tungsten Putty is ideal for getting your car up to the maximum 5 oz limit. Drill a hole in the bottom of your car and insert Pinewood Pro Putty as the last step to bring your car to 5.0 oz. If the official scale weighs you in at 5.1 oz, simply remove a small amount of putty to bring it back to 5.0 oz.

      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.
