Tips & Hints
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
Nyoil stays on your axles throughout the race, unlike powdered graphite that blows off every time your car goes down the track. This gives Nyoil coated axles a speed advantage if your car keeps racing.
Put a coat of wood primer on your car before painting it because pine wood is porous and will absorb the first coat of paint. Lightly sand the primer after it dries, then apply a final coat (or two) for a clean, finished look.
Jacob had a blast seeing his car fly! Thanks for the tips!

This was our first year racing in the Pinewood Derby. We came out in second place. Thanks for all your help, without your book, we would not have won!! Look at that big smile.

My son--a first time Pinewood Derby participant--won his Den, Pack, and District championships thanks to Pinewood Pro! Also won design and workmanship awards. Thanks, Pinewood Pro!

Using these axles and BSA speed wheels, we set a track record, went undefeated and won the pack championship. My son is thrilled to be heading to districts and let me tell you, a winning scout is a happy scout. Can't recommend these enough!
