Pinewood Derby Master Mechanic Kit

Pinewood Derby Super Tune Up Kit

This kit teaches the science behind what makes a pinewood derby racer go faster. The 24-page book is full of information, including race rules, building tips, and sportsmanship. Includes a car scale.

Included in the kit

Pinewood Derby Car Scale

Car scale - uses 25 quarters as a counter weight (not included).
Although this scale is accurate, it may not be as accurate as the scale used to weigh your car before the race.  We recommend using at least a few of the stick-on weights that are included in this kit to make your car balance on this scale. If your car is over weight, one of the weights can easily be removed.


8 stick-on weights with adhesive backing - .125 oz each for a total of one oz.
Most Pinewood Derby cars require more weight than this to reach the maximum 5 oz but these are ideal for fine tuning your car's weight.  We recommend that they be applied to the upper rear area of your car.
