Mini Pinewood Wheel Shaver – make your wheels perfectly round and concentric with the axle bore. In addition to making the stock wheels round, this stops any wasted energy from wheels because they are not turning true to each other. In addition, out of round wheels ride as though the track itself is bumpy, robbing your car of speed. Be sure to check all parts of a wheel because even a perfectly round wheel on the outside can have an off-center bore.
