Awana® Pinewood Derby Physics Car Body

Derby Dust Techs are offering a wide range of Awana® style car bodies this year.  Awana® Pinewood Derby Physics Car Body design for our AWANA® racers is a Derby Dust favorite for many years.  Made out of an official kiln dried pine block, wood weight is reduced dramatically when compared to a poplar block.  We then CNC cut our winning profile.  Awana® Pinewood Derby Physics Car Body is one of our fastest, proven designs based on a popular online college course.   Doable with average tooling which will include a drill press.  Usually two large pockets on the side of the car, filled with lead and covered with wood putty.

Awana® axles are larger in diameter than BSA axles.  As such, you will need to be certain you are ordering the correct body style for your axles.  If you do not know what Awana® is, then this is NOT the body style you need. Awana® and BSA parts are NOT interchangeable.    AWANA® is organization not a made up name for a body style.
