Tips & Hints
Make your car slim. If your car is too chunky, there will be lots of weight in the wood, leaving less weight for your weights. You want lots of weight so you can move the center of gravity to the optimal point to maximize inertia.
A lathed wheel means the wheel was turned at a high speed and "sanded" with a cutting tool. Lathed Wheels are perfectly tuned around the axis of rotation giving you the highest performance.
If it isn't explicitly stated in the rules, then you can do it. If you have questions about your rules, ask your race manager, since all races have different rules.
Thank you for all of the information. We had fun making the car! We're going on to the Regionals, as our car to 1st place in our den!

My son, won his pack derby today on our first attempt! He won 9 races in a row and none of them were even close. Thanks for your assist in this father & son memory.

We placed an amazing 2nd out of 28 cars. We only lost to first place by half an inch. Our car ran consistently all night. We won 2nd place overall! You will be our first stop next year!
This is our last year of Pinewood Derby. We have shopped with you all 5 years and our son won his Pack 2x, Districts 1x and placed 2nd the other times. Thank you!
