    "This pre-drilled block took the care of the hardest part: alignment. The wheels/axles all run perfect and straight over repeated runs. The best part is my son still did all the work: cut, sand, paint and had a blast doing it. Best part was we won!! Coming back this year to purchase another one."

    Be Careful - I Couldn't Use
    Our rules for the first year didn't allow changing the axle slots, so wasted my money. You may have a warning about this, but I missed it before purchasing.

    We won!
    This is the 2nd time we've used this pre-drilled wood body from PWP and it's great. The standard kit body with the grooves for the axels simply has too much slop and you can easily get a non-square groove and create toe-in for your car and kill your speed. The only gripe I have is that to use the raised wheel option you want the raised wheel in the front, and at least in our pack we have to use the standard wheelbase. This means we want the longer end (from axel to end of the body) to be in the front. The way the extra hole is drilled on this body means we couldn't use that feature. That's the only drawback I could find. Despite that small drawback, we still won our entire pack and even set a track record!

    Saved us time, axles were straight!
    We don't have a drill press, and last year we could never get the axle (nails) exactly parallel in those standard axle slots, and know that hurt us. This year, using this Pre-Drilled Pinewood Block, we took 1st place! Yes, we did other prep items (graphite, etc.) but this block provided a perfect start. And it was awesome to just push in the nails (axles) when we were done painting...and know that they would be properly aligned. Thank you!

    Drilled Pinewood Block
    Saved my son a lot of time and didn't need to purchase wheel alignment/specialty tools since holes were already drilled perfect. My son took 3rd place only to 1st & 2nd place adult built cars...if you know what I mean.

    Pinewood Pro Family hand picks blocks to replace defective ones, went above and beyond to make it right!
    The Pinewood Pro family cares about their customers. I have been shopping with them since we started Cub Scouts. This is our last pinewood derby and ordered early to get a head start. The blocks we received had some defects. When I reached out to them, they responded immediately! The went above and beyond (literally over the top) to help me. Andy with Pinewood Pro communicated with me constantly and even went as far to personally hand select the new blocks! This is not a box store. They treat you like you are part of the family. I am so appreciative that I built a relationship with them over the years because it made a difference when it counted. Thank you Pinewood Pro family, I will share my experience with others to pay forward the time, effort and extra cost you put in to help us!
