Hi. I bought this item recently and used it on my son’s derby car. Thanks to this stuff, it clinched the pack victory in a really, really close championship race. My son is now pack champion and he’s thrilled. Was wondering if it’s possible to purchase more … and to save it for next year? Would it keep and be as effective if I save it at home for next year as opposed to purchasing it next year before his pack derby? Please let me know. Amazing stuff. Thanks so much! Now he’s just eager to get his trophy!

Hello, Thank you for getting me the derby dust last week when another vendors highly rated product just did not cut it. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for sharing your products with me. The experience has been really positive.

For the derby the combination I ended up running on my sons car and three other kids car (single moms) was BSA certified wheels and axles rules.
The polished nail (1000 grit) with creme toothpaste polish Light initial dusting of BP2000 dry lube gently hand rubbed into the axle pre-fill the wheel and axle with another dry lube and spin 5 by hand at slow speeds with a slight shake to distribute.

This could take 5-6 times Once I have 20+ spins the wheel is mounted Once the car runs straight the final dry lube is added by a needle fill to both side of the wheel and spin for maximum speed and duration.

Progression: based on processing 20 nails, fastest 16 running on a car Straight wheel and axles nothing done 10-12 spins of time (seconds) Sand and polish (tooth paste and rinsed) 15-16 seconds of revolutions before stopping

Light dusting and burnish maybe 1 more second of spin

If I use BP2000 as the final lube and break in the maximum wheel spin is 23 to 24 seconds, good for most races but not going to districts.

With derby dust dry lube added at this level of prep the spin count averaged 31 seconds of spin before stopping.

Based on running on the test track at the house (25 feet) with a pace car
20 spins/seconds loses to the pace car by 1 car length (7)
24-25 seconds of spin loses by 3 inches at the finish
31 seconds of spin beats the pace car by 2 inches based on 5 runs with lane swapping


In real time comparisons:

  • Track 32 feet
  • Wood with high tech finish
  • Electronic time and start gate
  • 5 oz car
  • Running 4 wheels down
  • 7 inches long ran the track in 2.49 seconds
  • Grand Prix software calculated as 216 mph estimated.

At the race on Saturday, my sons car won the grand prize for best average time over 4 runs and set the track record for speed.

The attached picture is his car.

How do I know the extra revolution of spin made a difference as the number two car, lost by 500th of a second. Less time than it takes for a hummingbird to flap his wings 3 times in hoover flight.

If you have any question please feel free to call and I’d be glad to try it. My wife this morning said she had still not sent the extra $6 for speed shipping I will make sure it out tonight. The only thing better than your product, was the teams attention to detail, in getting the product out to me quickly, to make the race day event. The three kids cars, who I used it on also did well making the day special for them.

Thanks so much for your time and help.

So the weekend before our Pack race, I gave a sample of Derby Dust to some friends that are in another pack. They generally have good cars and have been very helpful to us in our first year. So they watch the treadmill turn in video and used the Derby Dust on his car. Well, he won Webelows II Den and his Overall pack. He had a top speed of 195 mph!!

My sons are in the Tigers and the Wolves. Our Pack has a wooden 3 lane 28 foot track and each car runs each lane twice, then after the slowest time is thrown out they place the top 3 by average time. My Tiger won his den by having an average of 0.018 seconds faster than second and finished 4th in the Overall. My Wolf won his den by having an average of 0.086 seconds faster!!! The Cub master walked over to me after the first run and mumbled…. damn that was fast! An average car on our track runs about 2.65 seconds (180 mph) My Tiger was running 2.63’s and .64’s (his is the car with the fishtail problem) and my Wolf was the only Scout to run under 2.6 4 of his six runs were 2.58’s and .59’s!!
