Tips & Hints
Before cutting your car, use a straight edge to draw lines down the center lengthwise and widthwise across your car. Then draw your car design template over these straight lines. The template and straight lines help guide your cutting on both sides of the car so everything is square.
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.
When it comes to Pinewood Derby racing, Rules are not meant to be broken. Check with other racers or your race manager before your race to clarify what is allowed and how your car will be inspected when it is checked in.
Great tips in your Winning Secrets book! This was our first year and my son was the overall District Winner. There were 250 racers at the District race so I'm guessing we have something like 1,000 scouts in our district. With that type of competition you need these tips to be competitive.

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!
