    "Using these axles resulted in noticeable improvement of the cars speed. In the past I spent a lot of time working the axles to smooth and remove burrs - these were great!"

    4.9 out of 5 stars



    Polished, nickel plated mirror finish, wobble eliminator groove plus friction reducer groove. An added bonus to the grooves - they hold graphite inside the axle during race! PRO Super Speed axles are the fastest on the market, guaranteed.

    Exact dimensions as BSA axles with...Super-smooth polished and nickel plated, secret cuts reduce friction and eliminate wobble.

    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 exact dimensions as BSA axles...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

    Optimal Performance!
    • Axles are machined perfectly round and straight for optimal performance

    Get the fastest axles on the market!

    Awsome
    These axles gave us the edge. My son has been getting better and better each year. He does the research and asked if he could order these. We were not let down. He learns about friction and got first place in the pack.

    Fastest car in the entire meet
    We built 2 cars for my grandson this year. 1 for his town meet and 1 for the regional meet. He never lost a heat. At the regional meet the car set 4 track records. He is a Wolf and 1 tiger heat had a faster time by .002 seconds. Otherwise he has the next 6 fastest times of he day. Axels,, wheels, square mounting holes, 5 coats of polyurethane, and good weight placement. WOW!

    I have used them before for my sons car. He placed 2nd. The last set we bought was okay. One seemed kinda bent. Noticed the car was going to the left. Will use them again but will take a double check to see if its level.

    Just enough speed
    I was glad we ordered the Pro Super Speed axles. My son is a Tiger Cub and his car won the pack pinewood derby. He won every race, but all were close and I'm sure the axles were a big reason for his success.

    Great as always
    These worked very well. I have used these in the past with great results. We are still waiting on the results of the most recent derby, but it looked preety good. At least 1st place in the den, but there were a few faster cars on the track. This was more due to the design of the car and a small alignment issue.

    My son's pinewood derby race was yesterday. With these pro super speed axles he won 1st place in the pack! Never lost a race. Times were very consistent between races too. Last year (his first race) his car wasn't good at all, he didn't win a single race and usually came in last. Not this year! Now off to districts next month.

    Derby Axles are Winners
    Loved the axles, The ones that came in the original box with the wood required so much work on them that the heads fell off. Yours were polished groved and ready to go. We attached them ran graphite in to the back side of the wheel and ran them with a drummel tool intill they sounded smooth and even. My boys took first and second out of a field of 18. Thanks I will be buying next year.

    Good product
    Great axles, all the polishing and prep work has been completed, the only thing left to do is install them and add graphite. I know of some other people that bought these same axles or similar products but had poor results, keep in mind the axles still need to be installed right so the car rolls true. If you build a good car and install these axles correctly you will have a fast car. My boys took first place in both of their divisions!

    The grove on the axel could be a little larger That would cause less friction and be faster.

    I belive that these along with the tires are the single biggest advantage to have. They are perfectly straight and super smooth. They also weigh within .01g of each other so you know they are balanced.

    1st place
    Even though these axles are for the BSA wheels, they worked well for the RA thin wheels. My child actually took first place! There were others that had nickel plated axles, but they finished in the lower top ten. I would recommend these over the others on the web since they were a great help for a 1st place out of 54 competing cars.

    Super Fast
    I purchased these along with the BSA speed wheels, and they did as promised. The car was the fastest ever on the track at the pack level. Took first in the Den and Best time in the pack by nearly a tenth of a second. Took second in District race due to looser rules than our pack, so we were a little slower, but only by five hundredths of a second. Not too bad. Next year we will build two cars, one matching the pack rules and one matching the district rules.

    Two years I've worked on axles myself, sanding, trimming, sanding, trying to get the things mirror-finish smooth, without burrs, and every year we've come in 2nd. This year I bought these. They're beautiful! Silly to call 4 little nails beautiful? Maybe - but this year we came in first, and I swear I think it was the axles.

    Like you right now, I read all the reviews of people on this website and others saying their axles are the best axles on the market. Being an engineer, I could see from the pictures that the workmanship was second to none. For the money, I figured would give them a try. My son won 1st place. Would definitely purchase again.

    These are very good axles. However, they are a different color tint than BSA axles. So if only BSA axles are legal, they may not make it past inspection.

    These axles make the cars go so much faster than the ones that come with the cars.

    Well worth the Money
    The Axles and wheel combination helped my son win 18 out 18 races. The graphite groove held the graphite for the duration of the race. I will ALWAYS get these for my son.

    Great axles!
    we took second last year and first this year. you still have to put them on right and the axles are not the only thing that makes your car fast. These are a good addition to any derby enthusiast.

    Using these axles resulted in noticeable improvement of the cars speed. In the past I spent a lot of time working the axles to smooth and remove burrs - these were great?
