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

        The axle slots that are cut into standard blocks are too tight for BSA axles that are .089" diameter. Small axle slots make it difficult to get your axles in straight. A #44 drill bit is .086", which I find too tight. Consider a #43 Drill Bit, which is a perfect match at .089" for a snug fit.

        painting Tip

        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.
