Tips & Hints
Lighter wheels turn easier (they require less inertia). Lighten your wheels, as much as your Rules allow, which will give you a fast start out of the gate and faster speed down the track.
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.
Tungsten Putty is ideal for getting your car up to the maximum 5 oz limit. Drill a hole in the bottom of your car and insert Pinewood Pro Putty as the last step to bring your car to 5.0 oz. If the official scale weighs you in at 5.1 oz, simply remove a small amount of putty to bring it back to 5.0 oz.
My son placed 1st place in the St. David's Cup.
This is our second order with Pinewood Pro and everything from the website to the delivery to the product has been excellent. As a Dad experiencing his first Cub Scout Pinewood Pro is a great resource to make sure I don't screw up! Thanks,

Thanks for helping out with these orders. I appreciate the quality of your customer service and will definitely recommend your company to others in my son's pack. Cheers!

1st Place!! Thanks for the everlasting memories you have made possible!

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!
We got a "Most Realistic" for the Humvee and an 4th place with the "wedge." You would have thought my seven-year-old twin grandsons had won college scholarships! I was a hero. Thanks, again. I'll probably be back next year, Lord willing.
