How Do We Ensure Flawless Performance?

While participating in PWD racing events, you have to be confident in reliability of your car parts. At our store, you can find race-inspired accessories of various types. Paired with our pinewood derby wheels and axles, your car will get a tremendous boost owing to:

  • CNC lathed axles to ensure they will always have consistent profiles.
  • Round, straight axles without burrs or ridges. High-quality shafts along with shaped axle heads ensure exceptional wheel stability.
  • Unmatched CNC axle polishing. When opting for a pinewood derby axle kit, racers can additionally select the grit level, dry or oil lubes, and Krytox sealing. Keep in mind that even minor scratches on a shaft may lead to an improper wheel rotation. As a result, undesired friction will slow down your roll.

Other Tools for Cub Scouts

Accurate alignment of pinewood derby car axles plays a pivotal role when building a race winner. In such a case, special mounting blocks may come in handy. If you face any problems with axle insertion into an extended wheelbase slot, it is recommended to use our helpers. At Derby Dust® store, you are provided with pinewood derby axle tools for more precise adjustment. Moreover, these instruments are designed to achieve the proper distance between a body and wheel hubs while eliminating constant friction as well as damage to your pinewood derby body.

Rules Compliance Is the First Step Towards a Well-Deserved Win

Derby Dust® offers the range of PWD car parts and tools, which meet BSA requirements. Given the fact that racing specifications of each individual Cub Scout Pack may vary, you can choose additional modifications of kits or untick included ones. Thus, it is up to you to have your wheels sanded, or outer hubs modified.

We provide Cub Scouts with room for improvement, creativity, and breakneck speed. Upgrade your car with no limits and leave other racers in the dust.
