Tips & Hints
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.
When lubing your wheels and axles, shoot graphite powder into the wheel bore, spin your wheels, and repeat. Do this over newspaper in your garage or outside the house.
When painting with children, it is better to use a paint brush rather than spray paint because spray paint can cause vapors. If the child is spray painting, be sure to use a breathing mask and be in an open area.
As soon as he got home, he ran up stairs to his room to put his trophy of his shelf. I will defiantly be buying from you. Thanks for the Winning Secrets!

I have a Webelo 1 and Webelo II Scout and they placed 1st and 2nd in this year's Pinewood Derby and will now go on to compete in the regional race. Thank you for all the good that you are doing and helping make kids dreams come true.

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.

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!
