Our mission is to help kids and their parents build a high-performance pinewood derby car, and to have fun in the process.
On the Pinewood Derby - We believe that the pinewood derby is an excellent adult/child event in that it promotes craftsmanship and following rules, and has a healthy dose of competition. Our family approaches the event with the primary goal of having fun building and racing our cars. Our secondary goal is to build the fastest car possible within the race rules.
On Winning - We believe that in the pinewood derby (and in all aspects of life) we should strive to 'do our best'. However, we do not promote a 'win at all cost attitude', as this approach goes beyond the bounds of fairness and fun that should characterize pinewood derby racing.
On Parental Involvement - Children should do as much work on the car as they can physically and safely accomplish. For a younger child, the adult must usually be very involved. For an older child, the adult role should be that of a coach or mentor.
The main reason for developing the car plan booklets was to provide a way for children to be more involved in the car building process. By using the templates and step-by-step instructions, the child can take a much more active role than they would be able to otherwise.
On Business - We provide our customers with quality products and customer service at a fair price. We cannot guarantee that your car will win a trophy, but we can guarantee that you will be satisfied with our products and our service.
