Derby tools and tricks to maximize your car speed!
Eight Speed Advantages to beat the competition!
First, just like the wheels on your family car, |
your pinewood derby car wheels need to be
balanced and tuned for optimal performance.
The BSA wheels in your kit have many imperfections that
cause your car to bounce, vibrate and turn to one side or the other,
resulting in lost speed.
To increase your car speed, we have precision lathed and tuned your wheels,
resulting in maximum speed.
PRO Speed Wheels have a unique feature, only from Pinewood Pro.
Your wheel tread and hub are perma-coated with graphite giving you
a super fast wheel for the ultimate speed advantage!
Official BSA PRO Speed Wheels will give you the extra speed to win...
It worked for us right through the district races!

Tips & Hints
Spin each wheel and axle and count the number of revolutions. Keep the slowest pair together and replace them with a faster set.
Nyoil stays on your axles throughout the race, unlike powdered graphite that blows off every time your car goes down the track. This gives Nyoil coated axles a speed advantage if your car keeps racing.
Crooked axle slots are perhaps the number one reason cars crash into the lane guides. Drill the axle slot with a drill press or the PRO Driller to be sure your axles go in straight and are square to the block.

This is our last year of Pinewood Derby. We have shopped with you all 5 years and our son won his Pack 2x, Districts 1x and placed 2nd the other times. Thank you!

Using the tips on your website, Daniel's car won every race for his den, and won the district races. It seemed that his car got faster with every run. We have memories that will last.
