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 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.
Spin each wheel and axle and count the number of revolutions. Keep the slowest pair together and replace them with a faster set.
Lead is denser than zinc but lead is toxic, so we do not recommend handling it. Use non-toxic weights like zinc or tungsten.
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.
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!

We came in fourth place; very respectable, given it was our first time. Thanks very much for helping us overcome our building weaknesses with great products.
