Pinewood Derby XLITE Speed Wheels

We machined a new line of light weight racing Pinewood Derby XLITE Speed Wheels.  Will break records for those rules that require all lettering in left in tact on both sides!  Please take note, these wheels are not meant for rough handling.  In order to get wheels to this xlite weight, the walls of the wheel will be thin, sometimes easily pliable.  Weight reduced wheels require tooling to install and remove the axles.  Please plan according.  This wheel can easily be pinched, and crack if care is not taken. Take note, never pull axles out by grabbing wheel.

A few options here.  Take a little time to read over it.

Reduced Weight Pinewood Derby Speed Wheels: 1.5, 1.4, 1.3 gram wheels

The 1.5 gram wheel weight will have 1.174″ outer wheel diameter, lathe work done to the inner portion to reduce weight, full factory width, and factory edge in tact, coned outer hub, flawless inner bore reamed with .0960″ to ensure proper bore clearance, and lettering left in tact on both sides.

We designed the 1.4 gramish wheel weight with full factory outer diameter (>+1.180″), lathe work done to inner portion to reduce weight, full factory width (.360″), coned outer hub, flawless inner bore reamed with .0960″ to ensure proper bore clearance, letters left in tact on both sides.  We designed this wheel for the all factory measurements.

Record Breaking 1.3 gramish wheel weight is so fast its crazy.  Handle this wheel with extreme care.  1.174″ outer wheel diameter, lathe work done to the inner portion to reduce weight, full factory width, coned outer hub, flawless inner bore reamed with .0960″ to ensure proper bore clearance, and lettering left in tact on both sides.  Please do not squeeze the wheel as it may crack or break.

1.174″ wheel diameter surface takes on the temperance of a sanded finish.

Expert Tip.  To get the most out of these wheels — Seriously polish the bores.

Important Note

The lathing operation removes a small amount of tread surface. The serrated edge is intact. The tread reduction is barely visible to the eye, but is measurable with a caliper. If your race restricts the use of lathed wheels, do not purchase these wheels.

  • The weight of the wheel is reduced by removing all excess plastic from the underside of the wheel tread and the inside wheel face.
  • BECAUSE OF THE EXTENSIVE MILLING OF THIS WHEEL, YOU MUST USE EXTRACTION PLIERS TO REMOVE THE WHEEL AFTER INSTALLATION.  IF YOU ATTEMPT TO REMOVE WITH ANY OTHER METHOD YOU ARE GOING TO BREAK OR WARP YOUR WHEEL.  GUARANTEED.
