Tips & Hints
The axle slots that are cut into standard blocks are too tight for BSA axles that are .089" diameter. Small axle slots make it difficult to get your axles in straight. A #44 drill bit is .086", which I find too tight. Consider a #43 Drill Bit, which is a perfect match at .089" for a snug fit.
Lead is denser than zinc but lead is toxic, so we do not recommend handling it. Use non-toxic weights like zinc or tungsten.
Don't attach feathers or big decorative parts that can cause drag. This will decrease your car speed

Using the tips on your website, Daniel's car won every race for his den, and won the district races. It seemed that his car got faster with every run. We have memories that will last.
Thank you for your help, my grandson took first place in his pinewood derby race!

We ran our 3 cars at a local pack meet, and what a great time my kids had. Both of my two boys prepared their cars with your tooling. My boys were given first and second place.
