Tips & Hints
Many of the BSA "nails" that come in your kit are crooked. Chuck each axle in your drill and spin them. If the axle looks blurry as it spins, that axle is crooked. Replace crooked axles or consider getting an Axle Press Tool to straighten crooked axles.
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.
If your block is cracked, don't panic! The only problem with a cracked block is if the crack is near the axle, which can cause the axle to move. Random cracks in safe areas can simply be filled with wood filler.
Once we ordered your tips and tricks we won 1st place every year since. Thank You so much for this information and making my son's pinewood derby career a success.
Thank you for your help, my grandson took first place in his pinewood derby race!

Hey Joe- Just wanted to pass on the good news- and a few nice pix. We ended up in 2nd place out of 63 cars racing. Not too bad, and we'll be at district in a few weeks.

This was my 7-year-old's first Pinewood Derby and he won 1st! We followed your Winning Pinewood Derby Secrets and his car smoked other the cars by 4-5 car lengths each race. Thanks again.
Using these axles and BSA speed wheels, we set a track record, went undefeated and won the pack championship. My son is thrilled to be heading to districts and let me tell you, a winning scout is a happy scout. Can't recommend these enough!

James won his first pack race and also won the district race. He never lost a race using your products. Thank you for all you are doing.
