Tips & Hints
Just like the pistons in an engine block, you want your axles to be tight fitting in the wheel bore, to reduce wheel wobble. If your Rules allow, use one of our slightly oversized Speed Axle or PRO Super Speed Axle.
When painting with children, it is better to use a paint brush rather than spray paint because spray paint can cause vapors. If the child is spray painting, be sure to use a breathing mask and be in an open area.
BSA Rules are different from Awana Rules, which are different from Adult Race Rules, etc. Check our Pinewood Derby Rules page to download Pinewood Derby rules for different kinds of races.
