November 14, 2011 - The info and products offered by your website are great. We built two Low-Riders, one for me and one for my 9 year old daughter. They were worlds faster than anything there. We took First place in both divisions and the took the overall championship. Thanks again

July 25, 2011 - I just purchased Ultralight BSA wheels and speed axles from you to use on a car racing at my company picnic. I want you to know that I was more than satisfied with the quality and performance of the parts. The wheels and axles were used on a BMW M3 GTR, running at 8 ounces, with a 1/16 inch ground clearance. I won today and I am positive your quality parts helped me achieve my victory.

May 1, 2011 - Thank you for all the help and info. Addison won her class and the overall final in her Girl Scouts pinewood derby. They also put on a car show at her school the day before the race, where she got a best paint job award. I think you have a very helpful web site.

April 18, 2011 - I want to thank you on a job well done. Last year (our first year) my son didn't fare well at all. The best I could do was love and support him with statements like, "We did our best for our first attempt." So, this year we used your Velocinator design and the results were way beyond what I expected. Right out of the gate, he won the Coolest Car Award. But the Velocinator isn't just cool looking, it's fast!!! My son placed 3rd within the entire pack. He was so excited, that evening he slept with his trophy in hand. Because of your products we're heading to the District Race to help represent our pack. Again, thank you!

Elmer Z. -
April 18, 2011 - Over the past two years we have used your products and read your speed tip booklet. Well it's time to say thank you! Last year my son took 1st in his pack and 2nd at Districts! Now this year he won 1st in his pack and 1st Districts. It was great to see his face when he reached his goal. Thank you so much!

Ron M. -
April 9, 2011 - Just wanted to THANK YOU again as we just returned from the District Race and my son won GRAND PRIZE this year. As a Tiger and his 1st District race it was amazing! The Tungsten Canopy, design advice, files and tools made all the difference in the world. Thanks again and please keep up the fantastic work!

Dylan & Ian R. -
April 5, 2011 - We have used many of your parts and tools for the past few years. My son won first place in his pack, first place in his level at the district competition, and second place overall at districts out of hundreds of cars. This is the second year in a row with the same exact results. We need to buy more trophy shelves!

April 5, 2011 - I wanted to let you guys know how pleased I am with your products! We purchased your 4070 Ultra Light Wheels and your 4099 Grooved Speed Axles and won 1st place last weekend at Districts!!! Your products really do work great! We will be ordering again next pinewood derby season.

March 26, 2011 - My grandson took 1st for his den, 1st for the pack, and 8th for his District. We also raced in a family heat (separate car) and took 1st for the family. We had quite a race day celebration! Thanks for the supplies and tips.

Phil V. -
March 25, 2011 - My son, Trent, had great success with the use of your tools and supplies in building our Pinewood Derby car. His car broke the track record for speed both at the local and regional level. He competed against over 100 cars and took 1st place in every heat and won the Bear's Division and the overall division.

Bruce W. -
March 24, 2011 - I wanted to let you know that my son (a Tiger Cub) just had his first pinewood derby. He won his group and then, incredibly, he won the overall King of the Hill. We built a Wedge Turbo from your free design and it really worked great. Thank you for all your great tips and tricks, they really worked for us.

Brian M. -
March 21, 2011 - Well... I'd say your plans and all your advice paid off... My Tiger Cub took 1st place in the pack and my 4 year old son took 1st in the siblings race. Yikes! 🙂 Thanks again for all your help!

Victor B. -

March 21, 2011 - Just a note to thank you for your website and products.  This year my son and daughter took 1st place in their respective divisions in our district derby.  We used your wheel tool, tungsten weights, and Max-V-Lube. This was our second year racing.  We set new track records for speed and consecutive wins.  WOW! is all I can say.  Thank You!

March 17, 2011 - We must have gotten something right with your knowledge, tools and supplies; my boys bagged 1st and 2nd place by a mile in last night's Grand Prix!"

Ray R. -
March 9, 2011 - Thank you again for your assistance! In our very first Pinewood Derby Race, we won best design, 1st place in our den and 1st place over all!!!! Our times were near all time record speeds! Since we were beginners to both scouting and the Pinewood Derby we searched online for tools and best practices in designing our car. Maximum Velocity provided us with the tools, a choice of great designs and made it easy for us to build a great race car! Winning it all in our first race sure was a blast! Thanks Randy and Elisa!

Robert M. -
March 7, 2011 - I am very pleased with your products and service and will continue to use you over and over again for all of my pinewood derby needs. My son and I used your products in our race this year, and the results were wonderful. My son took 1st place in both his den and in his pack!

Kyle R. -
March 6, 2011 - Just wanted to let you know that we built two classic wedge cars for the Awana Grand Prix. One car made it to the semifinals and the other won the event. My 6-year old was thrilled. Thanks for the great Car Plans.

B.F. -
March 7, 2011 - So, unbelievable. My son won the whole thing -- grand champion. Unbelievable. Thanks for your help!

Jim J. -
March 7, 2011 - I just wanted to give you a THANK YOU for the great products! My daughter won every race in the girl's division of her Native Daughter's tribe, sometimes by 1-2 car lengths! She was invited to compete against the boy's division if she wanted to. She responded with an emphatic YES!! So we drove 30 miles to the boy's track, and watched all the boys run till the #1 boy was picked. Then the grand finale was set....she won by a tenth of a second! So she was Grand Champion! You helped make a 10-year old girl's day and night! Especially when I could hear, "You got beat by a girl?!"

Brian P. -
March 5, 2011 - I just want say thank you. We used some of your products, and all I can say is WOW!!!! My boys ran first and second over all. We are Maximum Velocity fans forever. Keep up the great work; see you next year.

Paul H. -
February 28, 2011 - A quick word of thanks for your attention to customer service. In recent months, we have made two purchases from Maximum Velocity. The products were shipped in a timely manner & performed better than I would have ever expected. Our first Pinewood Derby experience was a positive one, and we're looking forward to next year. Rest assured that we will be repeat customers!

M.D. -
February 12, 2011 - I just wanted to write to thank you. I used your needle axle outlaw wheels in an outlaw race. With very little preparation my car took first place. I know it was the wheels and needle axles that did it. They are the best!! Thank you. I will recommend them to anyone that asks.

Teddy A. -
February 13, 2011 - Thank you for the nice car body kit: the Velocinator. I got second place in the pinewood derby this year, and am hoping that next year I will be in first place.

Bill O. -
February 6, 2011 - My grandson and I built a Wedge Turbo from your plans. He finished first in his den and second overall. He won 11 of the 12 heat races. Thanks for all of your information, assistance and great tools.

Jim S. -
February 9, 2011 - Just wanted to share how pleased we are with using Maximum Velocity's products and tips. Our results this year were great! My son placed first in his Bear den and second overall in the pack! My daughter raced in the sibiling's division; she placed first in siblings and first overall in the Pack (setting a new track record in the process)! There were a couple of "long faces" in the crowd when they found out the overall champion was a girl. But my daughter (11 years old) has been building PWD cars with me and the boys since the older ones were in Cub Scouts back in 2000. So she could hardly wait until her younger brother (9 yrs old) got into Cubs so she could begin building cars again. Go Girl Power!

February 7, 2011 - I want to personally thank you for your help and return calls with suggestions and help on how to drill and install my X-Lite wheels on my pinewood car. For the past 2 years I had come in 3rd place in a friendly pinewood derby race. We follow the dimensions and weight requirement of BSA but that's about it. Well this year, out of 21 cars of
all shapes, sizes and pretty clever designs, most designed and built by engineers and their engineering firms, in front of 800+ people, my car placed 1st. Never lost a race, not even close. It was great to finally win over the big guys with a PE at the end of their names. Thank again.

Jonathan H. -
February 5, 2011 - My son had so much fun at his race. He took home two trophies: 2nd place in his group, and Most Patriotic. Thanks again!!!

Mitch G. -
January 29, 2011 - Just a quick thank you for all your products. My son won first place in his pack of 60 boys. It was a thrill we would have never had if it we hadn't used your products. Thank you for excellent products and service!

Marty -
January 29, 2011 - Wow!! Thanks for the helpful advice and for the great products. My seven year old daughter just had her first derby and she won her entire division!!! Never lost a race!!!! (It's pretty cool when you hear the judges say "wow, that car is fast!")

Doug & Josh S. -
January 29, 2011 - This was our second year with our Awana Grand Prix. Last year we were 17 out of 30 and never finished higher than third in a race. Both my son and I are hyper competitive and I vowed we'd do better next time. I found your website and we purchased the advanced speed kit along with some tungsten weights. This year we won all 8 heats and set the track record three different times! In fact, our 8 times were the top 8 eight fastest times of all 232 times recorded. Needless to say we finished first for the night in speed out of 29 cars.

Dale P. -
January 25, 2011 - I just wanted to let you know my boys had a great year this year (2011). Our oldest used the Predator design and did not lose a race in his division and got 2nd in the Pack race of 76 cars. Our second son won the outlaw race with the Vaccinator! Since we started using your products to prep the axles and wheels along with
the car plans and kits, we have finished every year in 1st or 2nd. Thanks again!

Ron M. -
January 24, 2011 - We used several of your pinewood derby speed tools (Tungsten Canopy & weights, Max Velocity graphite - EXCELLENT applicator!, etc.) and in my Tiger Cub's first PWD he placed FIRST in all divisions! 1st in Den, Rank and overall !!!! Thanks so much for the helpful advice, making the speed parts affordable and for sharing the amazing amount of knowledge that you all have to help the newbies. We would not have been able to come even close without your advice and help.

Kevin & Lauryn J. -
January 23, 2011 - I would like to share a brief story of success that my daughter and I had during the Powder Puff Pinewood Derby for her Girl Scout Troop. My daughter not only won her age group, she also won the Grand Championship (beating all other cars, including those of parents). Everything worked extremely well I could have not been more proud of her and pleased with the products. Thank you for helping us make the most of our very competitive outing.
