Selected 2016 Testimonials

Brian M. - April 18, 2016 - We won the district of about 33 packs with your Wing design and supplies (axle sandpaper, weights and graphite). Thanks!

James S - April 8, 2016 - Thanks to Randy and all his help. This year my son took first at district and at the council race; my daughter also won the sibling's race. I would encourage everybody to use these products if you want to do well

Robert H. - March 20, 2016 - I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding products you sell and the customer support that backs it all up. My son walked away with first in his den, second in the pack, the Cubs choice award, and best in show. Again thanks for taking the time to help me out over the phone, not once but twice.

Talan N. - March 16, 2016 - I just wanted to give you and your team a big shout out! We purchased the wedge and the super fast tires and axles from maximum velocity. Put the car together with my son. Followed your instructions and headed to the derby. We walked in and quickly noticed that we might be in trouble. There were four cars that were stretched and they all looked extremely fast. Including last years champion!!!! I turned to my son and said its ok we have had a good run over the years and it looks like it will be someone else's turn to win.

Well I'm here to tell you that we won all are races!!! They took the top 8 cars and raced them twice on both tracks. Than they averaged the times. We came out on top!!!! My son and I were elated!!! Let me remind you that we beat four stretched cars and we even raced a dad that showed up with a champion souped up stretched car and beat him.

Thanks again Randy for the memories!!!


Stan S. - March 15, 2016 - Many thanks. My 5 year old grandson won 6 of 7 races to take 1st place!

Brad C. - March 7, 2016 - We recently purchased some products from you. My son just raced at our pack race, and he won!!!

Tom H. - March 5, 2016 - I just wanted to thank you. My son won first place with your Wing design at our pinewood derby. I will be ordering more from you in the future as I have 3 sons and this was my first car.

Paul H. - March 4, 2016 - Thank you Maximum Velocity; Isaac won 1st place in his Cub Scout Pack and 1st place for the Wolves!

Eric M. - February 22, 2016 - Thanks for making our first pinewood derby over the top. My son took grand champion of the pack, 1st out of 46 and my daughter was 3rd out of 14 in the siblings race. We will definitely be back again!

Michael J. - February 13, 2016 - We had our derby today and the car we made with your Jaguar kit finished in 1st place in the pack (out of 36 cars) for the second year in a row. The average speed of 135 mph was 3 mph faster than the next car. Thanks again for all of your help.

Jim & Holden H. - February 6, 2016 - Thank you for your help and quick shipping. My daughter's car did a clean sweep of the Daisy Scouts for the second year. She won 8 of 8 races. The other Dads are asking for tips (again)!

Nicole D. - January 29, 2016 - Thank you! I ordered items to make our first pinewood derby car. For my son first grader. It was so fun and he won for speed and design! Off to district next!"


Selected 2015 Testimonials

Jim - April 26, 2015 - We've used Maximum Velocity car designs, speed kits and other supplies for years and had excellent success. Both my sons won First Place at their Pack level multiple times (and fastest overall, even against Webelos cars). Both competed at the District level and collectively won First, Second and Third place at the District level across many years. And most recently, my youngest son won First Place and fastest overall at the Council Pinewood Derby, against the fastest of the fast from all of our ten Districts. Speed axles were polished using your Axle Polishing Kit and the Diamond Polish (new this year), and then lubricated only once before the Pack races with Max-V-Lube graphite. We didn't add anything after that, and it keeps winning races. This stuff all works great!!

Kirk F. - April 10, 2015 - Thanks for the site and all the video links. We used the pro tool kit to help with our car build. The tungsten putty worked perfect to get the car to weigh exactly 5.0 oz. We also used your graphite and free car plan. WOW! Fast Car! My son took first place overall!

Phillip - March 30, 2015 - The Pack race went well on Saturday. My younger son got first place with the Wing, and my older son won second place with the Jaguar. I really appreciate all the help and advice you gave us!

Mike Hill - March 27, 2015 - Our race was last weekend and there wasn't a car within 2 car lengths of our car. Got some good ideas from your cars on display, and of course the tungsten canopy, wheels and graphite were what gave it the edge.

Jeff A. - March 16, 2015 - I used your BSA Speed Axles, Graphite, and a Body Skin for my Daughters Powder Puff Derby. She went up against 21 other cars and beat every one of them by at least a car length. I just wanted to say thank you for making me one of the 'most hated' dads in the town. The time spent with my daughter on building the car are memories that will last a lifetime.

Richard J. - March 8, 2015 - Well we won our pack derby and now itís on to district. Thanks for the help.

Vicky H. - March 8, 2015 - Just wanted to say Thank You for helping to give my son one of the best days ever. Using your matched wheels and speed tips he placed 1st in his category at the pack level, 2nd overall in the pack and just yesterday placed FIRST in Bears at the District level! We were astonished. We never even placed in our pack prior to this year. We didn't have a rail rider either. Matched wheels made all the difference!! Thanks Again!

Jim O. - March 8, 2015 - Thanks, Randy and Elisa. We've had a great time with our son, Thomas, in 2 years of Webelos and racing in the Pinewood Derby. This has been 2 years in a row he has been den champion, overall pack champion and I as the parent's champion. In 2 years we raced 24 races, winning 20 of them. Your products work, your plans and instructions are easy to follow and your customer service is very good.(I had called yesterday from NY about balance. You returned the call in minutes).

I was never a Cub Scout and never gave this event much thought. It's far more interesting than I ever imagined. These have been great memories and other folks are asking how we did it. You're who we recommend. We're glad we did business with you.


David S. - March 7, 2015 - In our district race, my son won first place in the Webelos II and 1st place overall. This was the 3rd time he has won his rank at the district. This was our first time to win 1st place overall. He won second place overall last year.

We had our Council derby today and my son won 1st place in the Webelos II and 1st place overall! It was great to finish our pinewood derby days on top. This was the 3rd time he has won 1st place at the Council in his rank, but the first time he has placed in the top three. The car was the Predator design. Thanks for all your tips and great pinewood derby products, as well as your quick response to emails on questions.


Jonathan K. - March 5, 2015 - Thanks to the specialty tools purchased from Maximum Velocity we went undefeated in my sonís first year pinewood derby as a wolf. Utilizing all the best techniques, he won by several car lengths over and over again and again.

John K. - February 27, 2015 - I just came back from the races at our RV resort. The pinewood derby is a big thing here. There was about 250 people to watch the races and 34 cars competed in stock and modified classes. Thanks to you I won first place in both stock and modified, and also won second in modified. I entered 3 cars and did great. Thank you again.

Michael D. - February 22, 2015 - Thanks again for all of your help Randy. We had our Pinewood Derby yesterday and our cars finished 1/2/3 out of 30 cars racing! The 4th place finisher was quite a behind our three cars. Thanks so much again.

Merrill E. - February 11, 2015 - I wanted to say thank you for your help and the great products from your site. My son was fortunate enough to win all four races and win the pack competition.

Bret W. - February 9, 2015 - Your tools, know-how, and supplies led my son and I to two victories in under 24 hours. Saturday night, I won our outlaw race by a handy margin. Then on Sunday, my son came away with the Grand Champion's trophy (44 cars raced total). Thanks a lot!

Justin C. - February 6, 2015 - All of your help, from advice to products proved invaluable. My son took home first amongst the Tigers as well as winning the overall "Grand Championship" trophy. Looking forward to next year's build.

P & T - February 2, 2015 - Just wanted to write and say thank you to you and Maximum Velocity for helping us out on such short notice. Every year our cars looked great but we got killed on speed. This was my sonís last pinewood derby as a Webelos, and he said that he wanted his car to go fast for a change. With Maximum Velocityís help, we took first in his den and were in the top five in the pack. Thanks for helping us cap our pinewood derby career with some speed - we really appreciated it.

David R. - February 2, 2015 - My Tiger cub learned to use a file, sand paper saw and rotary tool. He polished his wheels and nails with an electric drill. He painted and put the dry rub stickers on his car. We spent thirty minutes together aligning the wheels. When we got it all done he was so proud of his car. He won his Den and Pack, and is headed to districts. He put twenty hours into his car and he learned a lot. I am glad, with your help, he was rewarded for all his hard work.

Kevin F. - January 31, 2015 - Just wanted to say thank you for your quick shipping and on time delivery. Your product put us above the competition; we went undefeated all the way to the pack championship today. My son is so happy he won his first trophy!

Tucker S. - January 30, 2015 - Our pack race went great!!!! My family had a good showing. My oldest took 4th in speed, my wife took 4th in the adult race, I took 2nd, and my youngest never lost a race all day! He won it all, fastest car in the Pack (out of 107 cars - siblings and adults included). LOTS of fun!

AL - January 29, 2015 - I would like to thank you for the tech support and your great products. My son's car was incredibly fast averaging 2.583 in spite of him dropping it while registering for the race and cracking one of the wheel hubs and chipping the wheel. The next fastest car was over a quarter of a second behind. We also built an open class 10 ounce car using your outlaw wheels and pin axles. This car ran constantly between 2.38-2.39. Thanks again!

Devin F. - January 28, 2015 - My son used your products, including the Pro-Body Tool to drill new axle holes to lengthen the wheelbase. The car never lost a race and even the slowest time was better than any other car. Thanks for the assistance.

Steve D. - January 26, 2015 - I just wanted to say thanks to your assistance with quality products, my boys took second and third overall yesterday at our packís pinewood derby!

LV - January 24, 2015 - My son and grandson built a car with your parts. Guess what? He received an award for the best design. We are very happy for my grandson. Thanks very much!

Charles B. - January 24, 2015 - This year was my son's first pinewood derby. He won 1st place in the Tigers and had the FASTEST car in the pack. While hours of preparation went into the car, I believe your graphite played a major part in our success. While other cars were slowing down, ours got faster, setting two track speed records. THANK YOU!!!

JW - January 17, 2015 - We won the whole dang derby! My son's car didn't lose a heat. My daughterís car won the family division, and would have placed second for the pack if she was allowed to compete with the boys. Thanks for your help!

Anthony L. - January 19, 2015 - The two cars we built took 1st in their dens, and took second and third in the pack. We used weights, templates, graphite, polishing kits, etc. that we purchased from you over the past three years. Thank you for providing excellent products and services. Weíll be back next year!

Phil W. - January 22, 2015 - We used your products and my son took 1st place! Thanks for helping create a wonderful memory with my son.
