The Spider Pinewood Derby Car
Design Plan

The Spider Car




The Spider Car is a sleek aerodynamic design that is a favorite because it is easy to build and it has won many races. The Spider has very little wood because it is thin and the sides are cut in. As a result, you can place more weight to the rear of the car.

Our easy step-by-step instructions include the only derby car plans on the market with fully illustrated 3D AutoCAD images.

We show each cut, along with weight placement, car building do's and don't tips plus speed tips and a painting guide.

Each car design plan comes with cut-out templates so you can't make a mistake.

We even show your car in 6 different colors,
plus give you a 360 degree animation of the final car so you can view it from all angles!

        Tips & Hints

        If you have a bad wheel and you don't have time to replace it, Raise that Wheel so it doesn't touch the track. Since it doesn't touch the track, it won't have any negative affect on your car's speed.

        weights Tip

        Tungsten weights are ideal for pinewood derby cars. Tungsten is about 1/3 smaller than a zinc piece with the same weight. Therefore, you can pack Tungsten weights in a smaller area to optimize your center of gravity to maximize inertia giving you greater speed at the finish gate.

      • This will be my 3rd year ordering from you. This year I have an 8 year old son, a ten year old son, and my 12 year old daughter's young women group is also doing the pinewood derby. We are still undefeated – Last year we purchased your wheels and axles and won 1st place again, 2 years running!
