Pinewood Derby Speed Axles

Derby Dust® store offers a vast range of derby parts for a substantial performance upgrade. If you’re a PWD enthusiast and want to boost your chances to win the next race, you won’t be able to achieve your desired results without adequately prepped Pinewood Derby Speed Axles.

Derby Dust Axles are tracked ran with evidence based results made here in the United States with BSA parts.   Anyone that claims they have “valid” track data is a lie because there is so much more variables involved than just axles.  How about how much lube is on the wheel from race to race?  How was it staged from race to race.  Is it still aligned the same?  So many minute variables that will change results.  Only when you can isolate the speed axle with no other variable can it be accurate results.  Only then can it be considered a valid experiment.  Anything else is snake oil.

What are Pinewood Derby Speed Axles?

Pinewood derby axles do not make speed.  You do not gain more energy to make your car faster.  What they do is reduce friction.  Therefore, you should view it as they do not “slow” the car down.  Axles allow more energy to be used to push the car down the track when properly prepared.

Final overall goal for axles should be to give the PWD wheel a surface to spin on with the least amount of friction.  Attention to polish, amount of axle that touches the wheel, and lube will help produce a fast Pinewood Derby car.  Just remember axles are only one part of the other factors needed for making a fast pinewood derby car.

Trued and polished BSA speed axles have won thousands of races and will continue to do so for many years to come.  When pared with the correct lube, adjusted for proper alignment, they are near impossible to beat.  DIY or have us do the work for you.  Stay legal.  Check your rules before buying aftermarket products.

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.
