Fine tune your car with this Pinewood Derby track. It's as easy as ABC!

Example of pinewood car derby

Tip #26

Improper wheel alignment is one of the most common reasons that your pinewood derby car is running slow. If your car drifts to the side, the wheels will rub against the center guide rail and slow your car. To minimize this, make sure that your axles are aligned so that your car will run as straight as possible.

Tip #66

Taper the bottom of your car up slightly at the front to prevent the chance that it will rub against the track when the car reaches the bottom of the track slope.

Thanks for getting the order out quickly. I thought I'd follow up by letting you know my son won his pinewood derby race in both den and pack. We used a multi-car approach going with the fastest and using your practice track to test the cars. He was consistently getting a speed under 2.6 - the only one doing so. Thanks again.....Robert H
