Note: Better wheels are only one of many factors that make a fast car. Good wheels alone may not improve your speeds. When designing your car, there are several key issues to consider that includes the efficiency of all the parts put together. Using these known tricks (like tungsten weights or speed axles) will result in a fast pinewood derby car that looks and performs better.

  • Once your graphite lube has been raced off, there is no lubrication between your axle and wheel bore.  To ensure that you have an advantage, decrease friction even more.  Bore sealant is the step up after polishing the bores smooth and prior to lube.  The more friction you can reduce will give you the advantage over the next racer. Pinewood Wheel Bore Sealant is the last step in wheel prep for that Derby dad who needs the extra edge to a race.  Factory and reamed wheel bores contain minute scratches, ridges and rough spots that create friction and decreases the car's racing speed.   Polish smooth with our wheel polish kit then go the extra step and seal the polish job.  This polish will smooth the wheel bore to reduce friction and make your car go faster.  This is an overnight job.  Got to let the sealant do it's job! Once sealant is applied,  allow it to dry to a haze for approximately 15-20 minutes, blow out the extras, then wait 30 minutes.  Buff off the haze, then allow sealant to cure for about 10 hours hours.  Curing is the key to this sealant.  It does its chemistry thing to make a super slick, near friction-less surface.  Good things come to those that wait.

  • Our Wheel Go/No-go gauge will help you improve your race by providing a consistent and quick way to inspect pinewood derby wheels while the wheels are mounted on the car.  Inspection is a breeze once you understand how to use this tool and there will be no arguring about caliper bias. Please do not try and force the wheel between the tongs. Simply try to pass the gauge through the wheel from the bottom up. If the wheel does not pass through then the wheel PASSES inspection. If the wheel is able to pass through the tongs, then it fails that measurement. Weight reduced wheels are very pliable and thus calipers will make them fail every time.  Bring one of these guides on race day to ensure you do not get D/Q because of measuring bias.  If a car is built with wheel wells (fenders) , the OD gauges cannot be used (of course a digital caliper cannot be used in this situation either).  Be prepared.
    • No Wheel Modification Allowed - If the wheels may not be sanded or modified in any way, then use the 1.180 OD gauge and the .360 width gauge.
    • Wheel Modification Allowed - If the wheels may be sanded or lathed, then use the 1.170 OD gauge and the .320 width gauge unless otherwise stated by your packs rules.
