This is one of the hottest rods of the well-known Pinewood derby weights. This is about 1” in diameter and 2.6 oz. Durable and solid tungsten with slot is ideal for appropriately working weight around rear axles for rear-weighting your car. Some ¼ cubes or putty can be added in the slot for some additional weight.
Because of its high density, the Tungsten is a great weighing material for the Pinewood Derby cars. Only platinum, gold and few other expensive and rare metals have the same density. The Tungsten is about 1.7 times denser as compared to lead and around 3.2 times denser than zinc weight usually utilized on Pinewood derby cars. Therefore, it allows tremendous freedom in car design, particularly for speed. This allows builders to place a larger amount of weight on an aerodynamic and small area.
Tungsten is completely environmentally friendly and non-toxic. Pinewood Derby tungsten products are crafted following a process known as “sintering”. This process includes compacting as well as forming a solid mass of materials through pressure and heat without melting this to liquefaction point.
This enables the craftsmen to create precision, high density and sized products of all sorts of Pinewood Derby exclusive constructions. You’ll not only find Derby tungsten with the highest density but also finish-polished for ultimate appearance and best fit.
The Pinewood Derby Tungsten Disc Slotted is another exciting Pinewood Derby product that you should not miss. Many individuals are now making their actual purchases. This product can indeed create a big difference in your overall Pinewood Derby experience.
