Why a matched set?
BSA manufactures wheels from 18 different molds, numbered 1 to 18. The wheels in your kit can be from any of these molds. You can see the mold number embossed on the inside of each wheel.
Problem is, each mold is slightly different. Wheels can have slightly outside diameters, different bore sizes, hubs and tread characteristics.
When every milisecond counts, you want each wheel to be exactly the same because small differences will make the car slightly off balance affecting speed. Just like the car you drive, your wheels should be "balanced" to get optimal performance.
Pinewood Pro Matched wheel sets contain four wheels, each from the same mold to give you optimal performance, balance and speed.

Tips & Hints
Need a little extra weight on weigh in but didn't bring extra weight with you? Use a coin! Here are the weights of US coins in ounces: penny .11 oz, nickel .17 oz, dime .07 oz, quarter .18 oz
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.
Put a clear Gloss Paint Sealer on your car to protect your cool paint job from dirt and graphite smudges.
