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
Lead is denser than zinc but lead is toxic, so we do not recommend handling it. Use non-toxic weights like zinc or tungsten.
Don't attach feathers or big decorative parts that can cause drag. This will decrease your car speed
BSA Rules are different from Awana Rules, which are different from Adult Race Rules, etc. Check our Pinewood Derby Rules page to download Pinewood Derby rules for different kinds of races.

Hey Joe- Just wanted to pass on the good news- and a few nice pix. We ended up in 2nd place out of 63 cars racing. Not too bad, and we'll be at district in a few weeks.
