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
Just like the pistons in an engine block, you want your axles to be tight fitting in the wheel bore, to reduce wheel wobble. If your Rules allow, use one of our slightly oversized Speed Axle or PRO Super Speed Axle.

Put a coat of wood primer on your car before painting it because pine wood is porous and will absorb the first coat of paint. Lightly sand the primer after it dries, then apply a final coat (or two) for a clean, finished look.

Thank you for the great Pinewood Derby tips! My son was so excited when he got the 1st place trophy!

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!
This will be my 3rd year ordering from you. This year I have an 8 year old son, a ten year old son, and my 12 year old daughter's young women group is also doing the pinewood derby. We are still undefeated – Last year we purchased your wheels and axles and won 1st place again, 2 years running!
