When designing your car, there are several key issues to consider that includes the efficiency of all the parts put together.  Using these known tricks will result in a fast pinewood derby car that looks and performs better. There are two most noteworthy factors.  A car with lighter speed wheels allow it go faster, however if the car is not aligned (tuned) then none of it really matters.

  • CNC lathe produce round and smooth wheels that will roll much faster than standard wheels
  • Weight reduction provides a faster start because of low start up inertia
  • Beveled hub design reduces the surface are friction of rubbing and braking when the wheel hub contacts the car body
  • These wheels allow for a greater top speed when compared to standard weight BSA wheels.

 

On a Builders NOTE…. You will need a set of pliers to pull the axles once installed. Because the wheels have been ligthend, you can no longer pull the axle out by the wheel. You will bend/warp out of round. Then the wheel will not roll correctly and you just wasted $$$. Please don’t let this be I told you so moment.

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.
