Tip #38

If you have access to the track before the race, carefully watch your Pinewood Derby car as it goes down the track. If it continuously bumps against the rail or bounces back and forth then your axles are out of alignment and should be adjusted.

Tip #63

To reduce friction when the wheels touch the car body, apply a coat of clear nail polish around where the axle goes into the block. Do this before mounting the axles on the block.

Streamliner Pinewood Derby Car

Thank you for supplying the parts we used to complete this Pinewood streamliner. My grandson had a great time racing for the first time and we both loved building our first car. We dedicated it to the 100th year anniversary with the 100 YEARS PROUD painted graphic....   Kirk E (Kirk used our Fin plastic accessory and Mag wheel decals as well as our Lathed Wheels and Polished Axles)
