Call for Photos
As you build your cars this year, please remember to send me a photo,
along with a brief write up on the car. I'm always looking for cars
for the Car Showcase section.
Photos must be sent by e-mail in JPG format (minimum size of
640x480, maximum size of 1280 x 960). Please shoot photos from the
front left of the car, similar to the orientation of this car.
Make sure the photo is not blurry. If your photos are blurry, try
holding the camera four or five feet away from the car, and then use
the camera's zoom to fill the frame with the car. Also, use a solid
(preferably white) background for the photo.
Send only one photo per car, unless an additional photo is needed to
adequately show a feature. Don't forget to include your name, the name
of the car (if it has one), and a brief write up on any design
features, inspiration for the design, and how the car performed at the

earlier issues. If you would like to contribute a memory, please see

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.
