PRO Super Speed Axles

The fastest axles on the market, guaranteed!

Polished, nickel plated, with secret cuts to reduce friction and eliminate wobble.

Exact dimensions as BSA axles. A perfect fit for Awana Grand Prix Wheels too.

pinewood derby Super Speed Axles

Better than polished!

  • Cut in middle of wheel so less axle rubs on wheel
  • Wheel does not contact axle so you have no friction (none, zero!!!) in this area
  • Provides a cavity to hold graphite during the race

Friction Reducer!

  • Tapered head so only a small amount is rubbing on the wheel

Oversized Axle Shaft!

  • Axle shaft is slightly oversized to reduce wobble because axle is tighter inside wheel bore. Diameter is .0910" verses BSA .0870" +/- .001"

Wobble Eliminator!


  • Axle shaft is undercut at the head to create a perfect 90 degree edge which eliminates wheel wobble...fixing another problem that slows down your car.
  • Undercut at axle head also eliminates friction in this area because less wheel surface is rubbing on the axle.
  • Undercut also provides another secret cavity to hold graphite during the race

Optimal Performance!


  • Axles are machined perfectly round and straight for optimal performance

Packaging

Axles are individually bagged to protect from scratches during shipping.


Rules Notes:


  • Axles are exact dimensions of BSA axles but they are machined parts. May not be legal in your race.
  • Rules are different for every race! Always read your race rules.
  • Questions? Ask your race manager!

PRO Super Speed Axles

pinewood derby Super Speed Axles

  • The fastest axles on the market just got faster!
    ...with a smooth, slick, graphite perma-coating that will stay on your axles right through the district race!

Notes on graphite-coated axles:


  • Yes, you still need to add graphite to your axles, because the powdered graphite needs to work through the wheel bore.
  • You should NOT use Nyoil with graphite-coated axles. We recommend using our Pro Graphite with moly lube with these axles, not Nyoil.

Pinewood Derby BSA Polished axles

These are the BSA axles that come in the BSA Cub Scout Pinewood Derby Grand Prix kit.
BSA polished pinewood derby Axles

Burrs removed on axle shaft

  • You must remove these burrs of they will grind inside the wheel bore.

Crimp marks removed from underside of head

  • Crimp marks must be removed or they will grind into your wheel, slowing your car like ABS brakes!

Nail head is cut back at an angle

  • Angling the head reduces friction where the head meets the wheel.

Polished

  • The axle is then polished to remove imperfections. However, these axles are not as good as our Speed Axles above...we recommend a light polishing to improve performance.

Packaging

Axles are individually bagged to protect from scratches during shipping.


Rules Notes:


  • Legal in BSA races that allow polishing axles.
  • Rules are different for every race! Always read your race rules.

      painting Hint

      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.
