Tips & Hints
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.
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.
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.
This is my son's first Derby car as a Tiger Cub Scout. We had a lot of fun working on this together. Even though he didn't place it was a rewarding experience. Next year we plan to build something even more unique and perhaps a little more challenging. Thanks for a great web site!

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!

Thanks for offering such great products to beginners. My son finished 1st in his pack, 2nd in his district, and 6th overall for his first year. Will definitely order from you again.

Thanks for helping out with these orders. I appreciate the quality of your customer service and will definitely recommend your company to others in my son's pack. Cheers!

We got a "Most Realistic" for the Humvee and an 4th place with the "wedge." You would have thought my seven-year-old twin grandsons had won college scholarships! I was a hero. Thanks, again. I'll probably be back next year, Lord willing.

This was my 7-year-old's first Pinewood Derby and he won 1st! We followed your Winning Pinewood Derby Secrets and his car smoked other the cars by 4-5 car lengths each race. Thanks again.
