Customer Testimonials
Jim - We've used Maximum Velocity car designs, speed kits and other supplies for years and had excellent success in our pinewood derby races. Both my sons won First Place at their Pack level pinewood derby multiple times (and fastest overall, even against Webelos cars). Both competed at the District level and collectively won First, Second and Third place at the District level pinewood derby across many years. Most recently, my youngest son won First Place and fastest overall at the Council Pinewood Derby, against the fastest of the fast from all of our ten Districts. Speed axles were polished using your Axle Polishing Kit and the Diamond Polish, and then lubricated only once before the Pack races with Max-V-Lube graphite. We didn't add anything after that, and it keeps winning pinewood derby races. This stuff all works great!!

Tom - Thanks, Randy and Elisa. We've had a great time with our son, Thomas, in 2 years of Webelos and racing in the Pinewood Derby. This has been 2 years in a row he has been den champion, overall pack champion and I as the parent's pinewood derby champion. In 2 years we raced 24 races, winning 20 of them. Your products work, your plans and instructions are easy to follow and your customer service is very good.(I had called yesterday from NY about balance. You returned the call in minutes). I was never a Cub Scout and never gave this event much thought. It's far more interesting than I ever imagined. These have been great memories and other folks are asking how we did it. You're who we recommend. We're glad we did business with you.

What kind of pinewood derby weight should you use? Tungsten is a the choice for most serious pinewood derby car builders. Tungsten is very dense metal that weighs the same as pure gold (but not quite as expensive!), thus it allows a tremendous amount of freedom in pinewood derby car design. We offer a large variety of tungsten pinewood derby weight including canopies, cubes, cylinders, bars, plates round, beads, and more. We also offer two forms each of lead, steel, and Tundra (lead substitute) weight for your pinewood derby car.
