Pinewood Derby Body Ultra Lite Fastest YouTube Car
There is a Video on YouTube that gives you directions on how to build the Pinewood Derby Body Ultra Lite Fastest YouTube Car. Not sure how legitimate this claim is, but he’s got a lot of good feedback. So we decided to take the grunt work out of it for you. We are offering a RAW CNC cut body meaning it still needs a attention. We are trying to build a community of builders, not a one store domination. Please look at pictures provided.
This design utilizes the 1″ tungsten disc. Please be aware that there is a 1.125″ disc out there as well and if you have that disc, there is NO WAY to modify this body to make it work. As shown in the video, you will still be short weight when using the disc weight. 43 grams short on weight when you use the 2.6 oz tungsten slotted disc, or 22 grams short if you use the 3.25 non-slotted disc. Be prepared to add more on the top to get this to weight in addition to your tungsten disc. This car comes in at about 10.5 grams so we will call it 11 grams of weight.
Stay Legal, know your Rules!
The rules of local events sometimes differ from those of BSA box rules. Due to this, it is necessary to know your rules before choosing our unique modifications for your PWD car. Each pack’s rules will be different. We ask before you make a purchase, please check your local rules. If you are unsure about the terminology, just email us, we will get you what you need.
Extended Wheelbase only. Axle placement is 3/4″ from each end which leaves plenty of room to remain legal. Axle holes are drilled with #43 drill. It will be semi-tight. And this body is well lets say treat it with care. Don’t be silly and rush things. I would recommend to glue the disc in first to assure yourself no issues prior to sanding and such. This is reinforce the wood and should avoid most mishaps of handling.
Weight holes underneath are .25″ diameter x.1875″ deep. This is good for weight ballast for bb’s, lead, or tungsten putty.
Body is about .375″ thick. Please plan axle install accordingly. Watch our videos. Use the drill bit that we provide if axle holes change in diameter due to humidity or paint. Don’t be lazy and leave us negative feedback because you thought you could skip a step and you broke your axle hole. I would highly suggest making this a rail rider setup.
Based on his specs shown in the video and his website. Good Luck!
