    Pinewood League Car Kit – Model B

    After many requests, we now offer a few proven designs of Pinewood League Car Kit.  Model B is based off our our widely popular wafer B-Frame.  This car is all business.  The core of the B-frame weighs around 7 grams.  Comes with a solid veneer bottom to hold your weights.   Because of the design, COG is infinitely possible along with all the adjustments you need to change the weight on the dominant steer to adjust for your drift.    This is an intermediate build level car.  Be careful with this build.  PLAN PLAN PLAN, read instructions, PLAN.   This car is ready for HIGH speeds.  Tech’s at Derby Dust have packaged a lightweight wafer car with aerodynamic fins to reduce drag.  Available with a low profile lead weight topper or tungsten for ultimate push.  This  means business.  It’s  a great start at getting that needed advantage in a competitive track.

    What’s in the Pinewood Derby League Car Kit

    This intermediate level league kit comes with all the needed things to make a quick and easy car.  Installation is a breeze because we deigned it that way.   Fins, pre-shaped car body, wheelbase, axles, and wheels of choice based on your pack’s rule set.  This kit is ready to roll with a little bit of work from your scout.  Laser cut, cnc polished race ready axles, and lathed turn wheel will get you the speeds needed to compete for placing.

    Aerodynamic Fins (Areo Fins)

    All league cars have areo fins to reduce air drag caused by the wheels.  When .001″ matters, this is a quick way to gain that.  Each balsa fin section is 2 parts in order to give proper track clearance.  We made them this to ensure that first time builders give will not have “fin rub” on the track as you are rail riding.  This method ensures that everyone can make Pinewood Derby League Car right the first time.  You will need to glue them together with glue of choice.  We like Elmer’s white glue.  Made with balsa wood, as such these fins are very light in weight and density, thus can easily be sanded and shaped to desired finish.  Overall thickness of each fin is 3/8″ when added to the 1.75″ body give is a total overall thickness of 2.5″ in width.

    Model B League Car Body

    Model B League Car body is a 1/4″ wafer plank made from kiln dried pondersoa pine.  We have laser cut pretty much all the wood from it leaving a heavy margin on front dominant steer side (right) for a little extra beef.  Optional lead topper will have a slightly different pocket configuration to accommodate the need to glue the topper to the frame.   B-Frame has 2 pockets on the underside in front / behind the rear axle for proper final weight adjustments.  Available in BSA Slot or BSA Drilled wheelbases.  Model B League Car Body is not offered in Extended wheelbase.  Setup for the car can be run as a rail rider, straight shooter, 3 or 4 wheels touching.

    Weight Options for Model A League Car Body

    Two weight options for this body include the flat canopy or tungsten cubes. The flat canopy has a incredible low profile with a total height less than 3/16″!  It sits on top of the car. If tungsten cubes are chosen, the body will have 2 weight pockets to ensure fastest possible COG underneath the car which will be covered with 2 veneer strips of wood.

    To top this off we offer 2 options.  Maple Veneer top, or choice of monokote colors that we have available.  Monokote is a shrink wrap with an adhesive back used to cover wings of model airplanes.  Apply heat to the edges of the frame, then heat shrink it tight.  Here’s how to apply it

    Model B car might NOT be the best car for your track or build level.  Please take in account how comfortable you are with PWD knowledge prior to purchasing.  Parts are there, the setup and build is what will finish the race.  As always we offer many upgrades in axle polishing, and wheel weights and finishes as your pack allows.  For those that like to DIY, please check out our line of racing lubes and polishing.
