Tips & Hints
Before cutting your car, use a straight edge to draw lines down the center lengthwise and widthwise across your car. Then draw your car design template over these straight lines. The template and straight lines help guide your cutting on both sides of the car so everything is square.
When your car wheel rubs against the axle head it can cause the wheel to wobble because the corner of the axle head is not a perfect 90 degrees. Cutting a groove directly under the axle head removes this source of wheel wobble. Cutting this groove is difficult to do by hand, but it can be done with an axle file. Our grooved Speed Axles and Pro Super Speed axles have this groove, exclusive to Pinewood Pro, cut directly under the axle head.
When adding Nyoil to your axles, "less is more"! Only use one or two drops per axle and wipe off any excess oil. The oil should not be run down your axle.
My son won 2nd place Medals. This was made possible by your personal assistance and Pinewood Pro products. Thank you, Joe for being the man you are and providing a service to our Youth.

We downloaded Winning Pinewood Derby Secrets and began reading and working. We won first place overall in our Pack! Alex is a Webelos 2 this year, so it was our last chance and we won!
