From Herb Hawkins:
The last issue included the "Lil Deuce Coupe" in the car showcase.
The builder did a lot of work hollowing out the car for batteries
because his son wanted lights. I came across fishing bobber refill
lights that work great for head lights and tail lights. I think your
readers would benefit from their ease of use and installation. It
takes just an 1/8 inch(I think) diameter hole in the car and it slips
right in. Add a little glue if it is loose and you are ready to go.
The lights turn on and off by pushing the LED in and out. They come in
red, green, and yellow.
To find the LEDs go to:
and search for "Lucky Jack Battery Refill"
MV Basic & Wedge Car Kits
If you are planning a race and are not required to use a specific kit
type, our MV Basic or Wedge Car Kit are just what you need. These attractively
priced kits are equipped with:
So, if your organization does not mandate a particular kit type,
consider our MV Basic Car Kits or MV Wedge Car Kits.
Quality Block - Unlike the blocks provided by some organizations,
our blocks are soft, northwestern pine blocks, cut precisely to 7
inches long, 1-3/4 inches wide, and 1-1/4 inches tall. These
dimensions, as well as the axle slots accurately duplicate the
dimensions of standard pinewood derby blocks from BSA and PineCar.
Simple Axle Preparation - Don't worry about filing off flaws, or
losing hub caps. Our Speed Axles have no burrs or crimp marks, and
install without hub caps. With or without polishing, they are ready to
go. We supply five, so you have a spare.
Quality Wheels - Forget cheap, out of round wheels. Our MV wheels
are top-quality wheels. You will not be disappointed with the quality
of these wheels.
