Nickel-Plated Pinewood Derby Speed Axles

Speed Axles (5)
For BSA, PineCar,
and Outlaw Wheels

In Stock

Say "Goodbye" to burrs and crimp marks! Speed Axles are equipped with a straight, round, and smooth shaft, and a slightly tapered head. But most importantly, there are NO BURRS OR CRIMP MARKS, so you can prepare these precision axles with minimal effort!


  • Burrs and crimp marks are not present, eliminating tedious work

  • Axle head is slightly beveled to minimize contact with the outside wheel hub

  • Axle shaft is formed to a high tolerance, ensuring top performance

  • The superior nickel-plating provides a hard, smooth surface for polishing. Nickel-plated axles are faster than zinc-plated axles as the coefficient of friction is slightly lower.


The axles substitute for official BSA, PineCar, and other nail type axles. Just a light polishing with our Axle Polish is all that is required to prepare the axles for racing. If you use our Axle Polishing Kit, skip the three coarsest papers - use the two finest papers.

Note that these axles closely resemble BSA and PineCar axles, but are not exact replicas (see photo below - the coloring is slightly different, and the axles are blunt tipped). So, if your race has a strict axle requirement, consider using our Official BSA Speed Axles, or use our specialty tools and supplies to prepare a set of the official nail axles.
