    Basic Speed Tips for Beginners

    If this is your first race, you need to know a few basic speed tips to have a competitive car...


    Weight your Car!

    • Gravity is taking your car down the track and inertia makes it speed to the finish line. Be sure your car weighs as close to the maximum 5oz as possible. You can choose from many different pinewood derby weights to add to your car.

    Prep your Axles


    • First, the axles that come in the BSA Cub Scout kit are not axles; they are nails, and crude ones at that! Run your fingers along the shaft of the nail to feel the crimp marks and burrs. These must be removed or they will grind up the plastic in your wheels, severely slowing your car.

    • You can modify the axles yourself with our axle file and axle polishing kit or get our polished axles, if you don't want to do it yourself.

    Lube your axles


    • The single most important thing you can do to increase your car speed is to lubricate your axles with graphite. It comes in a tube and is simply squirted on each axle.

        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.

        weights Tip

        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.

        lubes Hint

        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.
