Tips & Hints
Spin each wheel on a polished axle with graphite and count the number of revolutions. If a wheel wobbles, try spinning it again. If it still wobbles, get another wheel that does not wobble.
Our PRO Graphite, with molybdenum disulfide, is a proven winner. Our Track Tests show an average speed increase of 17%.

1st Place!! Thanks for the everlasting memories you have made possible!

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.

Hey Joe- Just wanted to pass on the good news- and a few nice pix. We ended up in 2nd place out of 63 cars racing. Not too bad, and we'll be at district in a few weeks.

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!

Last year we took 1st place in our pack I am sold on your speed axles and speed wheels. We raced the car in his elementary school, and he won 1st place in the whole school. Thanks so much!
