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.
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.
