Welcome to the New Pinewood Derby Season
Fall is in the air (even here in Arizona), and the smell of sawdust
will soon be appearing in workshops, garages, and basements across the
country. Yes, it is pinewood derby time!
Here at Maximum Velocity, we have a full agenda of articles and photos
to educate, entertain, and (hopefully) inspire you. But we are always
looking for your input. So, please send us your photos, speed tips,
articles, memories, etc.
In addition, we have Slotted BSA Speed Axles for adjusting the alignment of your car with a small screwdriver, the Pro-Body Slotter for cutting accurate axle slots, and we once again have Stock Wheels
for Awana races.
New Plan Booklet: Car Plans 8" is now available with plans for the

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.
