Tips & Hints
The best part of pinewood derby is designing a unique, cool car that you can call your own. Don't worry about aerodynamics because it is almost insignificant. We identify dozens of other speed tips in Winning Pinewood Derby Secrets that rank far above aerodynamics.
Spin each wheel and axle and count the number of revolutions. Keep the slowest pair together and replace them with a faster set.
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.
Jonah's car won 1st place in his Den, first place in the Pack and I couldn't believe it but he also won for Best looking car!

You people offer the very finest support and equipment for Pinewood derby cars on the planet! We went undefeated for the second year in a row. Cheers!
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!

Thanks a ton for all the tips and the Wheels and Axles! We beat cars that had taken district and region in Georgia! This was my last race with my two boys. Great way to end! Thanks again!
I can't even put into words how excited, proud and happy my daughter was each time her car won. Worth every penny, plus more. Thank you SO MUCH Pinwood Pro!

One of my girls won the "girls fav" car which was picked by all the girl scouts as their fav. Thanks
