Tips & Hints
A lathed wheel means the wheel was turned at a high speed and "sanded" with a cutting tool. Lathed Wheels are perfectly tuned around the axis of rotation giving you the highest performance.
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
Don't put a round peg (axle) in a square hole! Axle slots are square but your axles are round, making it difficult to get them to go in straight. Use a drill press or the PRO Driller to redrill the axle slot so you have a straight round hole to insert your axles
The speed axles did the trick second year in a row!

I ordered a set of your BSA wheels and axels last minute on Wednesday for overnight delivery. Our race was on Friday. We finished in 6th out of 80 cars, and will be going to the Divisional Race! My son was never happier! Thanks again!

As soon as he got home, he ran up stairs to his room to put his trophy of his shelf. I will defiantly be buying from you. Thanks for the Winning Secrets!

Hey Joe- Just wanted to pass on the good news- and a few nice pix. We ended up in 2nd place out of 63 cars racing. Not too bad, and we'll be at district in a few weeks.
