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.
We downloaded Winning Pinewood Derby Secrets and began reading and working. We won first place overall in our Pack! Alex is a Webelos 2 this year, so it was our last chance and we won!

I can't even put into words how excited, proud and happy my daughter was each time her car won. Worth every penny, plus more. Thank you SO MUCH Pinwood Pro!

Thank you for the tips in your Winning Secrets book. Out of 116 cars in our AWANA Grand Prix, my boys came in first in their divisions and 1st and 3rd overall. They were thrilled!

Great tips in your Winning Secrets book! This was our first year and my son was the overall District Winner. There were 250 racers at the District race so I'm guessing we have something like 1,000 scouts in our district. With that type of competition you need these tips to be competitive.

After winning 1st place overall for his pack my son went to the district race and won first place for the Bears using your wheels and speed axles. Great products, Pinewood Pro!
- Teddy from OH
James won his first pack race and also won the district race. He never lost a race using your products. Thank you for all you are doing.
