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!

      Hey Joe- Just wanted to pass on the good news- and a few nice pix. We ended up in 2nd place out of 63 cars racing. Not too bad, and we'll be at district in a few weeks.

      This was my 7 year old son's first Pinewood Derby and I would have paid 100 times the price just to see the expression on his face when he took first! Your information was invaluable!
