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

        Lead is denser than zinc but lead is toxic, so we do not recommend handling it. Use non-toxic weights like zinc or tungsten.

        painting Tip

        Put a coat of wood primer on your car before painting it because pine wood is porous and will absorb the first coat of paint. Lightly sand the primer after it dries, then apply a final coat (or two) for a clean, finished look.
