Winning Secrets and Speed Supplies for Boy Scout CO2 car racing
Blastcar Racing for Boy Scouts
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.

Award winning Blastcar design plans show you how to build a cool, fast blastcar. Each plan includes step-by-step 3D images so you can't make a mistake building your car.
Car plans also include cut-out template patterns, axle and eyelet placement for optimal performance, speed and distance hints, painting schemes and we even animate your car so you can see it spin around for a 360 degree view.
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.

Cool and Fast!
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.
Blastcar grooved and polished axles
For the ultimate speed advantage, our graphite-coated blastcar axles using our exclusive coating process gives you the fastest axle and is a proven winner.

Tips & Hints
If you have a bad wheel and you don't have time to replace it, Raise that Wheel so it doesn't touch the track. Since it doesn't touch the track, it won't have any negative affect on your car's speed.
Nyoil stays on your axles throughout the race, unlike powdered graphite that blows off every time your car goes down the track. This gives Nyoil coated axles a speed advantage if your car keeps racing.
Wood filler is your best friend when it comes to building a pinewood derby car. Use wood filler to fill holes, gouges and other cutting mistakes. You can even use it to add a bubble, racer cockpit, spoiler, etc.

One of my girls won the "girls fav" car which was picked by all the girl scouts as their fav. Thanks
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!
