    The fastest pinewood derby axles just got faster - with a polished graphite coating!
    Note: the outside of the axle head is not coated.

    Polished, nickel plated axles with two grooves; a wobble eliminator groove and a friction reducing groove.

    Now offered with a polished graphite coating for a super fast friction-free surface. PRO Super Speed axles are the fastest graphite coated pinewood derby axles on the market, guaranteed.

    Better than polished!
    - These axles are machined perfect, then polished, then nickel plated for a super smooth, mirror-like finish
    - No burrs, scratches or ridges
    - Just insert these beauties and you are ready to race!
    - They are the same size BSA axles and a perfect fit for AWANA Grand Prix too.
    Friction eliminator!
    - Cut in middle of wheel so less axle rubs on wheel
    - Wheel does not contact axle so you have no friction (none, zero!!!) in this area
    - Provides a cavity to hold graphite during the race
    Friction Reducer!
    - Tapered head so only a small amount is rubbing on the wheel

    Wobble Eliminator!
    - Axle shaft is undercut at the head to create a perfect 90 degree edge which eliminates wheel wobble. This eliminates another problem that slows down your car.
    - Undercut also eliminates friction in this area because less wheel surface is rubbing on the axle.
    - Undercut also provides another secret cavity to hold graphite during the race
    - Same dimensions as BSA axles with a slightly over sized shaft diameter (.091" vs BSA .088") to reduce wheel wobble.
    Optimal Performance!
    - Axles are machined perfectly round and straight for optimal performance

    Get the fastest axles on the market!

    -perfect fit for AWANA Grand Prix wheels too.

    Pinewood PRO Graphite coated "Black Lightening" Super Speed Axles (set of 4)

    Note: Because these axles are graphite coated, we recommend graphite powder as a lubricant. DO NOT use NyOil.

    Axles are individually bagged to protect from scratches during shipping.

    Rules Notes:

    • Axles are exact dimensions of BSA axles but they are machined parts, not the nails that come in the BSA kit. May not be legal in your race.
    • Rules are different for every race! Always read your race rules.
    • Rules questions? Ask your race manager!

    Great Axles! by
    5/ 5 stars

    This was my first time as a derby entrant and I had the fastest car in the derby and all because of the graphite coated axles. This was just a Christmas party thing in the Pentagon and the track was a hallway ramp. Won my first heat and since the track was an open track, the car next to me hit mine and spun me around but I still finished 2nd overall!

    First race and first place by
    5/ 5 stars

    When my son and I arrived at the derby races I thought we didnt stand a chance. These guys have been doing this for a few years now and it looked like nascar pit row before it started. My sons car weighed in at 4.8 ounces, the others 5.0 exactly. No matter though our little car out ran the fastest car by .4 sec and took first place over all. The only thing I can say is its not what it looks like that helps but whats under the hood. This was the first car we ever built.
