Pro-Bore Wax
for Pinewood Derby Cars

Pro-Bore Wax
1/4 Ounce

In Stock
  From Randy:
"In our experiments, the use of Wheel Bore Polish followed by Pro-Bore Wax improved wheel spin times for both Max-V-Lube and Krytox 100 lubes."

Wax the Wheel Bores to Improve performance!

Tests show that waxing the bore of your wheels will improve pinewood derby car performance when using Max-V-Lube Graphite or when using Krytox 100. Using Pro-Bore Wax will reduce the coefficient of friction, allowing the wheels to spin faster and more freely. This equates to improved performance on the track.

Improvement from Pro-Bore Wax
(Longer spin time equates to faster performance)

Pro-Bore Wax Instructions

Pro-Bore Wax works best after the wheel bores have been polished with Bore Polish. Waxing the bore is the last step in wheel preparation before lubricating the wheels.
  1. Apply a small dab of Pro-Bore Wax to a piece of the narrow pipe cleaner.

  2. Slide the pipe cleaner into a wheel bore and rotate the pipe cleaner so that the bore of the wheel is completely coated with wax.

  3. Remove the pipe cleaner and set the wheel aside.

  4. In the same way, apply wax to the other three wheels.

  5. After thirty minutes, insert a piece of the wide pipe cleaner into the bore of a wheel.

  6. Move the pipe cleaner back and forth to buff the wax.

  7. Repeat for the other three wheels.

  8. Buff any wax on the hubs as needed with a soft cloth.

  9. Lubricate the wheels as per the manufacturers instructions.
