Regardless of the axle type, the most important step is to have an extremely high polished axle shaft that is prepped with premium pinewood derby graphite lubrication. Also, there are many other factors that make for a fast Pinewood Derby car. The best pinewood derby axles in the world won’t help if those other factors are not addressed. Our prepped have been deburred, shaped, straightened and sanded down to a 2000 grit finish.
In addition, each axle goes through a buffing process up to 100,000 grit. We use separate buffing wheels to ensure no cross contamination. Then if you choose, we can seal the prepped axle with a Krytox sealing agent. This is NOT putting a drop Krytox oil on it. This is binding Krytox to the surface of the metal.
Derby Dust® also offers prepared aftermarket Awana® Speed Wheels. We offer wheels machined by us in house using our CNC lathes. In addition we offer the Derby Worx® line of aftermarket wheels. Both are excellent choices when looking at wheel upgrades. These wheels are a bit difficult to machine. Most do no not even try and modify them. We are one of a few vendors that offer Awana® Pinewood Derby Car Speed Wheel Axle Set.
Especially relevant is to make sure that you understand what axle and wheel modifications are permitted by your pack rules.
Just wanted to let you know my daughter had her Awanas Derby today. We had bought a set of speed wheels and coated axles from you. I entered an identical car with wheels and axles from a different company. I took 4th in the adult class and 3rd for overall speed. My daughter was 6 for 6 in the girls, took first. Then had it taken away because she was suspossed to be in adult class. Went 6 for 6 in the adult, took first. Beat me by 2ft.! Then she went 6 for 6 in the speed event and took first!! 18-0 for the day and I never worked on the car at all from the first pass to the last. Great wheels and axles. !!!!!
