    Save time! Official BSA Axles from the Cub Scout car kit, deburred and polished so you have a super fast car. These axles meet all BSA Cub Scout rules.

  • Axle shaft is lathed to remove burrs and crimp marks that significantly slow your car.
  • Underside of axle head is angled to reduce friction when wheel makes contact with head
  • Shaft is polished to reduce friction

  • All of the above would take a few hours with the proper tools...We did all the hard parts for you!

    Although these axles have been polished and are ready to race, if you want to fine tune your axles further, you could polish them a few minutes more with our axle polishing kit to improve performance even more.

    Axles are individually bagged to protect from scratches during shipping.

    Rules Notes:

    • Legal in BSA races that allow polishing axles.
    • Rules are different for every race! Always read your race rules.
    • Questions? Ask your race manager!

    Not packaged as advertised
    Axles were NOT shipped as advertised. They were NOT individually bagged to protest from scratches. I found a scratch on one of the axles. I still did a diamond polish of these axles and I really didn't see a vast improvement on our race times compared to when I prep the axles myself.

    Easier than easy
    My son placed 1st in class and 4th overall with 83 cars competing. I'm convinced that it was due to the axles, wheels & lubricant purchased here.

    Well worth the cost. Polishing axles is a pain, and these work great. Did the strategic "bend" and easy to use. Fit perfect.

    Fast Axles
    Purchased axles since they where pre finished. They lacked the wheel spin time line I was looking for so I did additional sanding with 1000 and 2000 grit and relpolished with a bit of automotive polish until mirror like finish. I'll just say first year scout set three track records while winning every race. Wheel spin lasted while passed 30 seconds. Car seemed to cut time every run we made.

    A must have
    Title says it all, last year in our 1st ever derby we won a couple of heats but ended up 25th out of 40 cars overall. This year 3rd place, 2nd fastest run time overall (had track record till the end) won 14 of 15 heats. I combined these with pinewood pros official bsa wheels lathed ect, and moly graphite. Off to districts next week. Thanks Joe you rock!

    Great Axles!
    Great set of Axles. Used them with standard BSA wheels and polished the wheel hub. Other than that, stuck them on the car put some NyOil II on them and the car flew down the track...!

    Excellent Product
    These were consistent and easy to finish with the normal polishing process. Took away the chore of straightening and de-burring the axles. Bought another set from another "garage" and these were better by far.

    Fast Axels.
    These axles came with the mirror-like finish. These axles obviously reduced friction. With a little graphite, these axles help the car go really really fast. I would certainly recommend these axles in pinewood derby races where the rules are very restrictive.

    A nice alternative to diy.
    I've never had luck getting my kid's axles polished. He kept coming in last no matter what I did. I bought these and he came in 4th, which wan't bad. The final times were all very close. Since they are BSA axles you don't need to worry about not being compliant.

    HUGE time saver
    While I decided to work on them a bit more, the axles were far enough along in the polishing process that I didn't have to file way the grooves and could focus on sanding and polishing. This saved time and we won our pack race and took 3rd at the District race. Well worth the investment.

    Excellent Axles
    I purchased these axles because I didn't have time this year to spend on making the axles that come in the box race ready. These axles only require a slight polish when received in the mail. I would highly recommend these axles to anyone that is looking at buying them.

    This was our First Derby attempt and we took first overall, beating the previous 3 time champ by a full car length! We did a little more axle polishing when we received them. Definitely worth the money.

    Worked well. My son and I did everything else regarding the car and getting it ready for the derby and polished axles from Pinewood Pro did the rest. We came in 1st place in our Pack. Shipped super quick.

    We purchased these nails to replace the stock ones I had prepped due to a crash during the pinewood derby as we didn't have time to polish another set. The car actually preformed slower than the stock ones. It was so slow a couple of parents asked me after the race what happened to the car.

    Most of the work is done. Just polish to the fineness your patience allows.
    Running an outlaw car and wanted most of the polishing done. I finished these with 3000 and then 5000 wet sand. Looks great!
