Tips & Hints
If you are using 3/8" round weights, drill your 3/8" weight holes before cutting out the rest of the car because it is easier to hold the full block. Always use a clamp to hold your block before drilling or cutting. Safety First!
When your car wheel rubs against the axle head it can cause the wheel to wobble because the corner of the axle head is not a perfect 90 degrees. Cutting a groove directly under the axle head removes this source of wheel wobble. Cutting this groove is difficult to do by hand, but it can be done with an axle file. Our grooved Speed Axles and Pro Super Speed axles have this groove, exclusive to Pinewood Pro, cut directly under the axle head.
When lubing your wheels and axles, shoot graphite powder into the wheel bore, spin your wheels, and repeat. Do this over newspaper in your garage or outside the house.
We came in fourth place; very respectable, given it was our first time. Thanks very much for helping us overcome our building weaknesses with great products.

We ran our 3 cars at a local pack meet, and what a great time my kids had. Both of my two boys prepared their cars with your tooling. My boys were given first and second place.

Everything was great! It was my son's first Kubcar race...approx 60 cars, and he took 1st place! He was so excited... Thanks again. Your Winning Pinewood Derby Secrets book really helped!
