  • Pinewood Center Gravity Mass Stand

    This balancing point (COG) will differ from car to car due to design, type of weight, type of wood, etc.  Knowing at what point your center of gravity will help you determine how aggressive your steer will need.  It will also need to be adjusted according to what type of track you are racing on.  Center of Gravity Mass matters if you want the best setup.  With a completely assembled car,  start balancing with the rear of the car hovering over the numbers.  Once you balance it, look down at the witness marks and locate where your rear axles are.  This will tell you your COG. Plus it doubles to help you install wheels without messing the other side.
  • Derby Worx Pro Axle Bender which is the absolute best tool for bending Pinewood Derby axles. You can now easily get a precise bend every time. No need for a hammer… just place the axle in the Pro Axle Bender and easily bend it with your fingers. Axle bending allows rear wheels to run canted, and/or the front dominant axle to be aligned for rail riding or straight alignment. Accurate alignment is a major factor to producing a fast pinewood derby car. The Pro Axle Bender is a fully adjustable Pinewood Derby Car Axle Bender designed to give builders a wider range of bend angles. By simply adjusting the stop collar with a 3/32" hex wrench, bend angles of 0.5 to 10 degrees can be achieved for a wide range of tuning options.

  • The Pro Body Slotter is the first tool of it’s kind for Pinewood Derby™ racing.  It’s unique design allows new/accurate slots to be cut in the body block to help meet the demand of the often required “Axles in the Slot” rule. New slots can be cut to replace improperly cut factory slots, re-locate the wheel base for increased speed or custom design requirements or even by add slots to both sides of the block,  the block can be cut in half to make a second car.  When paired with a “Pro Axle Guide” perfect axle installation and wheel spacing are a snap in the newly cut slots giving a highly accurate “Axle in Slot” assembly for maximum performance. *** saw and  2x  24 teeth per inch blades required ***
