Awana® Pinewood Derby Slim Wedge Car Body

Awana® Pinewood Derby Slim Wedge Car Body designed by Derby Dust Techs offer a fresh alternative to the Awana® racer.  Slim Wedge variants are the fastest designs that we offer.  Maximum COG benefits, reduced wood weight,  aerodynamic profile   The slim wedge variants can be accomplished with moderate tooling such as a drill press to make under pockets.   This Awana®  pinewood derby car is made out of  a kiln dried pine block of wood to reduce its overall weight when compared to the stock poplar block.  We then CNC cut the pockets and the overall taper of the body.  Two weight pockets on the underside of the car, filled with lead or tungsten cubes if you choose that option.

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.
