    4.5 out of 5 stars

    This is an Official BSA block with drilled axle slots that conforms to all Cub Scout rules.

    1. Wood is sealed and primed...the color is metallic silver. You can leave as is, or paint over it or just add decals and off you go!
    2. Car is pre-weighted to 4.3 oz +/- .2 oz (axles and wheels weigh about .5oz) Just add small incremental weight after you add wheels, axles, stickers, etc...to bring it to exactly 5.0 oz
    3. Car is balanced and rear weighted for optimal speed.
    4. Axles have been inserted once so you can easily insert your wheels immediately.
    5. There are 5 small holes on the bottom so you can add small amounts of weight to bring the car up to 5.0 oz...use Tungsten BB's or Tungsten Putty.

    The only tools you might consider are the Wheel Spacer (spacing between wheel hub and car body) and the Axle Puller-Inserter Tool (for inserting and removing axles without damaging your wheels).

    This is a pre-weighted car body only and does not include axles or wheels.

    This is the perfect car if you are short on time, don't have tools or are not comfortable using tools.

    1st place!!!
    We raced the other day with our pack. There were 30 cars that raced in a tournament style race with 2 cars racing at a time. We won every single race and took home the trophy. Until the final 5 cars, we won by a pretty good margin. The person who won second had this exact same car (I'm not sure if it came from here or what, but same drill holes and cutouts for the weights and everything), but you could tell their's wasn't preweighted. With wheels ours weighed 5 oz on the dot, we didn't have to add any weights. Overall a great car and we were very pleased.

    Fast, fast car
    Car is superbly built and weighted. Second year in a row I've purchased one. My son won first place for his Den (12 kids) and is moving onto Council finals. I used last year's for my daughter in the Open Class our Pack runs. Of course, I painted it Pink and guess what? She won too. Beating out 9 other competitors

    Nice, but pricey
    Read the reviews of this car body on multiple sites. They all raved about the car and its near perfect performance. The car came and was in pretty good condition. It needed some sanding before painting. Performance was similar to other cars that are weighted correctly. If you have the time, it is much better to build your own or use a body that you can add your own weights. If you do not have the time this would work. However you are paying a premium for convenience.

    not a winner this year
    Single mom has been doing these cars with my boys for years, and won 2nd or 3rd at least in the den runs and made it to the finals. With this car he was a secoond to two behind. Weight was dead on so don't know if I should have gotten better axles and wheels. The only happy ending this year was the car is nicely shaped and his paint job won.

    Winner
    The car won 1st place in our local pinewood derby. It doesn't get any better than that. The weights were perfectly placed inside the car when I received it and it was ready for me to paint the top coat. The primer was already on it. Next year if I get this car again I will sand it with 600 grit sandpaper before I paint it for a perfect looking finish.

    Not as good as it once was
    Second year in a row to buy this car. Last year the car was in perfect shape on arrival. This year the car has numerous small dings on the body - appears to have been dropped, slightly damaged, then shipped anyway. If you want a car to just paint & race competitively I still recommend it.

    This car ran great!
    Car needed only paint, wheels & axles installed and a little additional weight. We ran 3rd in our pack, and the car was running faster every race.
