Car Design Plans
Build the coolest car with over 25 car design plans that include step-by-step 3D illustrations, printable template patterns, painting schemes, speed hints, 360 animations and more. Many of these plans have won design awards!
Pre-cut cars, Blocks
If you don't have the tools, use one of our pre-cut, un-painted car body's or make your own car with our precision drilled block so your car rolls straight.
Just like your personal car, precision tuned wheels give your derby car perfect balance and optimal speed. BSA Lightly Lathed or Ultra-Lite wheels with our exclusive graphite-coating gives your car maximum speed.
Pinewood Derby Tools
PRO tools help you drill straight axle holes, insert axles easily, polish the wheel bore to reduce friction, smooth your wheels with a mandrel, accurately space your wheels and help you create a rail rider. Get a PRO tool to save building time, protect your block from damage and make your car go faster!
Graphite and NyOil
Increase your car speed by lubricating your axles with our high performance dry powdered graphite with molybdenum, or use a clean thin film NyOil lubricant.
Tungsten, Zinc Weights
To maximize inertia, bring your car up to the maximum 5.0oz allowed by your rules. Choose from a variety of weight options like tungsten cylinders, BBs or tungsten putty, or zinc stick-on, screw-on or cylinder weights.
Woodworking tools, like a coping saw, wood rasp, sandpaper and sealers, are essential to build and shape your pine wood car.
Paints, Stickers, Decals
Seal your pine block before painting, then paint, then cover with a clear gloss sealer for a shiny, hard paint finish. Make your car look great with custom decals, stickers and cool body skins.

Tip to avoid wheel wobble
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.

We got a "Most Realistic" for the Humvee and an 4th place with the "wedge." You would have thought my seven-year-old twin grandsons had won college scholarships! I was a hero. Thanks, again. I'll probably be back next year, Lord willing.
