Tips & Hints
When your wheel rubs against the axle head it creates friction. To reduce this friction, file the head back slightly using an Axle File to reduce the friction area.
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.
Don't put a round peg (axle) in a square hole! Axle slots are square but your axles are round, making it difficult to get them to go in straight. Use a drill press or the PRO Driller to redrill the axle slot so you have a straight round hole to insert your axles

You people offer the very finest support and equipment for Pinewood derby cars on the planet! We went undefeated for the second year in a row. Cheers!
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.
