  From Randy:
"We designed the Basic and Advanced Speed Kits to provide you with the key components needed to create a top-performing car at a reasonable price.

Use a Basic Speed Kit when using 'Speed Wheels and Axles', and use an Advanced Speed Kit when using raw (non-prepared) wheels and axles."

The Advanced Speed Kit includes the items you need to reach Maximum Velocity when using either prepared or unprepared pinewood derby wheels and axles. Each kit contains the following items:
  • Basic Speed Kit Items (see above)

  • Diamond Polish - For a final high-shine on your axles.

  • Mini-File - For removing flaws on nail-type axles

  • Pro-Wheel Mandrel - For mounting the wheels in the chuck of a drill to facilitate removing wheel flaws.

Axle Polishing Supplies

To achieve top speed, your axles must be polished to a mirror-like finish. To create this finish, you need some serious polishing material.
  • Axle Polishing Kit - The industrial grade cushioned abrasive papers in this kit take the guess work out of polishing BSA axles and other axles that have had flaws removed with file. The kit consists of one each of the following 4 x 3 inch papers, plus instructions. Note that the last two papers are much finer than any commercially available sandpaper, and are finer than pumice. One set of axle polishing papers is enough to polish 8 axles.

    - 30 micron - ~400 grit
    - 15 micron - ~600 grit
    - 8 micron - ~1350 grit
    - 5 micron - ~1500 grit
    - 3 micron - ~2500 grit

  • Diamond Polish - For the highest possible shine, polish your axles with our 1 micron diamond polish after using the 5100-Axle Polishing Kit.

  From Randy:
"Our Diamond Polish is a step finer than our Axle Polishing Kit. So first, use the Axle Polishing Kit. Then use the Diamond Polish for an extra fine shine on your axles."

  • Axle Polish - A quick way to apply a high shine on your smooth axles. Just a dab on a clean rag is all it takes.

  From Randy:
"If you are using axles without flaws, such as our BSA Speed Axles, et al, and if you don't want to spend a lot of time polishing, then you can use our Axle Polish for a quick shine."

Wheel Polishing Supplies

To achieve top speed, your wheel bores must be polished and shine like a mirror.
  • Wheel Bore Polish - This industrial grade product will easily and safely remove microscopic pits and burrs inside the wheel bore. It is water soluble, plastic safe, and polishes to a one micron finish. Includes two pipe cleaners.

  • Pro-Bore Wax - This plastic-safe wax will put a mirror-like shine on the wheel bore, reducing friction and improving performance. Includes two pipe cleaners.

  From Randy:
"In our experiments, the use of Wheel Bore Polish followed by Pro-Bore Wax improved wheel spin times for both Max-V-Lube and Krytox 100 lubes."

  • Fine Grit Sandpaper - This 800 grit sandpaper is used wet for polishing the tread surface and inside edge of the wheels. It can also be used for sanding between coats of paint. Includes one standard sheet of paper cut into six pieces.

  • Pipe Cleaners - Extra-fluffy pipe cleaners for polishing wheel bores, lubricating with graphite, and other uses.

Lubricants

Superior quality dry and liquid lubricants to help your car reach top speed!
  • Dry Lubricants - We offer Max-V-LubeTM and Tube-O-Lube:

    • Max-V-Lube is the "X" in Maximum Velocity! It is a proprietary blend of high-purity, natural flake dry graphite, which offers superior performance for pinewood derby cars.

    • Tube-O-Lube is a top-quality dry graphite.
  • Thin Film Lubricants

    • Krytox 100 - An ultra-low viscosity, highly-refined, synthetic thin-film lubricant from Dupont. It is plastic-safe and lasts longer than graphite under most conditions.

  From Randy:
"Max-V-Lube is a superior graphite for pinewood derby cars that puts the "X" in Maximum Velocity. We performed multiple controlled tests including inclined slide tests, weighted-wheel spin tests, and track tests. In all cases Max-V-Lube outperformed other graphite lubes. Therefore we highly recommend Max-V-Lube for your race. However, we are continuing to offer Tube-O-Lube as a low-cost option.

When applied properly, Krytox 100 is less messy and easier to use than graphite. Just make sure that non-dry lubes are allowed in your race, and then apply the lube per the included instructions. "Less is best", so take care to remove excess oil (excess oil not only makes a mess, but it also slows down the car!)."

Aero Fenders

Gain an edge at the finish line, and add pizzazz to your car!

Our precision, laser-cut Aero Fenders improve air flow over the wheels, resulting in a (typical) gain of a few milliseconds at the finish line. Both front and rear fenders are available, and are typically used together.

Aero Fenders are available in both pine and balsa wood, and are 3/8 inch thick. Both types have a spacer to maintain clearance from the track guiderail.

Pine fenders come in two parts, the main fender and the spacer. Balsa is lighter in weight, but not as strong as pine. So, to improve strength, the Balsa fenders are machined in three layers (one layer is a spacer). After gluing the three layers together, they are quite strong.

Accel Fenders

Easy to Use and Lightweight

Our 3-D printed, plastic fenders are pre-shaped, and lightweight (lighter than balsa fenders), making it easy for you to get more speed and a cool look. Just lightly sand, glue them on with epoxy, and paint (or paint separately for a two-tone look).

The Accel Fenders are hollow with an access hole. So if desired, tungsten putty can be placed into the rear fenders to get more weight on a lightweight car.

Air Guides

Improve Air Flow Around Wheels by Up to 19%

Air flow into the cavity of a wheel causes turbulence that will slow down your car. These Air Guides stop the flow of air into the wheel cavity, thus eliminating that source of turbulence.

The light weight, clear plastic Air Guides attach to the side of the car and insert slightly into the wheel cavity. The wheel spins around the Air Guide.
