      Pinewood Derby
      Tips & Hints

      If you are using 3/8" round weights, drill your 3/8" weight holes before cutting out the rest of the car because it is easier to hold the full block. Always use a clamp to hold your block before drilling or cutting. Safety First!

      axles Tip

      When your wheel rubs against the axle head it creates friction. To reduce this friction, file the head back slightly using an Axle File to reduce the friction area.

    • father-son derby winner

      This was my 7 year old son's first Pinewood Derby and I would have paid 100 times the price just to see the expression on his face when he took first! Your information was invaluable!

    • We placed an amazing 2nd out of 28 cars. We only lost to first place by half an inch. Our car ran consistently all night. We won 2nd place overall! You will be our first stop next year!

    • 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.

    • This is our second order with Pinewood Pro and everything from the website to the delivery to the product has been excellent. As a Dad experiencing his first Cub Scout Pinewood Pro is a great resource to make sure I don't screw up! Thanks,

    • Thank you for the tips in your Winning Secrets book. Out of 116 cars in our AWANA Grand Prix, my boys came in first in their divisions and 1st and 3rd overall. They were thrilled!
