Tips & Hints
Make your car slim. If your car is too chunky, there will be lots of weight in the wood, leaving less weight for your weights. You want lots of weight so you can move the center of gravity to the optimal point to maximize inertia.
If you have a bad wheel and you don't have time to replace it, Raise that Wheel so it doesn't touch the track. Since it doesn't touch the track, it won't have any negative affect on your car's speed.
If it isn't explicitly stated in the rules, then you can do it. If you have questions about your rules, ask your race manager, since all races have different rules.
After winning 1st place overall for his pack my son went to the district race and won first place for the Bears using your wheels and speed axles. Great products, Pinewood Pro!
