Tips & Hints
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.
Tungsten weights are ideal for pinewood derby cars. Tungsten is about 1/3 smaller than a zinc piece with the same weight. Therefore, you can pack Tungsten weights in a smaller area to optimize your center of gravity to maximize inertia giving you greater speed at the finish gate.
Don't attach feathers or big decorative parts that can cause drag. This will decrease your car speed
Wow, we did it! Dad, I'll never forget this night.

You guys are amazing. Thank you for such prompt attention. We will deal with you from now on. I have at least 9 more years of pinewood cars to make, and it's your products that will help us through them. Thank you soooo much!

I can't describe how happy my Son was to win! I'm a single Mom and didn't know how to build a car. I was so happy to find your amazing site. I'm beaming with happiness for my son.

My daughter won 1st place, and my son won 3rd place. It was very fun and hope to do again next year. Thanks for your great information,

This was my 7 year old son's first Pinewood Derby and I would have paid 100 times the price just to see the expression on his face when he took first! Your information was invaluable!
