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
The best part of pinewood derby is designing a unique, cool car that you can call your own. Don't worry about aerodynamics because it is almost insignificant. We identify dozens of other speed tips in Winning Pinewood Derby Secrets that rank far above aerodynamics.
The stock BSA "nails" that come in your kit are mass produced. These nails have burrs, crimp marks and can also be crooked, all of which severely limits your car speed. An Axle Polishing Kit and Axle File are essential to fix your axles and increase your car speed.
A warped block is ok, as long as your axles are square to the block. Use the PRO Driller Tool to drill perfectly straight axle holes which insures your car will roll straight.
We ran our 3 cars at a local pack meet, and what a great time my kids had. Both of my two boys prepared their cars with your tooling. My boys were given first and second place.
