Tips & Hints
Lead is denser than zinc but lead is toxic, so we do not recommend handling it. Use non-toxic weights like zinc or tungsten.
Our PRO Graphite, with molybdenum disulfide, is a proven winner. Our Track Tests show an average speed increase of 17%.
Put a clear Gloss Paint Sealer on your car to protect your cool paint job from dirt and graphite smudges.
This was our very first time building a Pine Derby car for Awana Club. We won first place in our age class and 3rd place over all the age classes up to high school. Thanks, Pinewood Pro!
