Pinewood Derby® Speed Axles
Fast winning Pinewood Derby® car designs utilize polished speed axles.
Take a look at the quality work of our Pinewood Derby® axles in these close up pictures. They say it all!
Always bringing new ideas to the concept Lexx has mastered polishing pinewood derby axles to the optical level.
Even better, listen.
We use separate buffing wheels to ensure no cross contamination. Then we seal the prepped axle with a Krytox sealing agent.
Through our professional, industry leading, lubrication resources, we have found a substance that binds Krytox to metal.
That’s right a metal sealing agent that has one of the most friction less substances known to pinewood derby racing.
This is not putting a drop of Krytox oil on it. This is binding Krytox to the surface of the metal.
You can’t even buy 2 of the tools needed to do this for under $25.
Much less the sandpaper, sealer and buffing materials.
We are getting average speeds of 12.45+ feet per second out of these sets or 2.47’s or less on a 30.75 foot metal track with dry lube!
Get even faster speeds with lighter wheels.
With speeds of 15+ fps on the last 10 feet of the track. With our graphite dry lube.
There is no reason you can’t do the same.
Axles are wrapped in tissue paper to ship to ensure that your axles are not scratched up during the shipping process.
