Don't attach feathers or big decorative parts that can cause drag. This will decrease your car speed
Put a coat of wood primer on your car before painting it because pine wood is porous and will absorb the first coat of paint. Lightly sand the primer after it dries, then apply a final coat (or two) for a clean, finished look.

This was my 7 year old son's first Pinewood Derby and I would have paid 100 times the price just to see the expression on his face when he took first! Your information was invaluable!
