Tips & Hints
If you are using 3/8" round weights, drill your 3/8" weight holes before cutting out the rest of the car because it is easier to hold the full block. Always use a clamp to hold your block before drilling or cutting. Safety First!

Put a coat of wood primer on your car before painting it because pine wood is porous and will absorb the first coat of paint. Lightly sand the primer after it dries, then apply a final coat (or two) for a clean, finished look.
My son won an award for most futuristic design. We really appereciated all your help. Thanks for all the help and guidance.
We won every race we entered as well as the grand prize for the fastest car! Thanks for your help and interest.
Thank you very much for the tips in your Winning Secrets book. Out of 116 cars in our AWANA Grand Prix, my boys came in first in their divisions and 1st and 3rd overall. They (and Dad) were thrilled!

My son placed 1st place in the St. David's Cup.
We placed a spectacular 2nd out of 28 cars. We only lost to the first place car by half an inch. Our car ran consistently 3.11-3.22 times all night. Our tops was a blistering 202mph (simulated). We won 2nd place overall and got the most patriotic car award. YOU will be our first stop for next year!
we downloaded Winning Pinewood Derby Secrets a couple of weeks ago and began reading and working. And, today, we won first place overall in our Pack!!! Alex is a Webelos 2 this year, so it was our last chance and we won it all. Thanks!!!
