Description

Whether you are involved in a Pinewood Derby® race through Cub Scouts or Boy Scouts, an Awana Grand Prix(1), or a similar race through Royal Rangers, Indian Guides, Christian Service Brigade, or another organization, Maximum Velocity! Advanced Car Plans provides you with three car design plans to turn your car kit into a winning car. All plans include templates and step-by-step instructions, and the plans provide for:

Also included is a construction timetable, woodworking tips, weigh-in instructions, thoughts on adult involvement in the pinewood derby car building process, and a bibliography. Most importantly, all of the information is in an easy to read format with 18 helpful drawings and diagrams.

The three car plans require some advanced woodworking and car building skills, thus, they are ideal for those who have previous experience with woodworking and with the pinewood derby.

Here are examples of some of the cars that can be built using the plans in the booklet. Note that either wheel base can be used with any design or option, and that the color and any desired decals are selected by the builder.

(1)Templates are not provided for the Awana 'centered' wheelbase. Check your local rules to see if the standard or extended wheel base can be used.

The Arrow

THE ARROW doesn't need a bow to give it top speed. And with the two-tone paint job, this car looks great even when it isn't zipping down the track.

  • 1/2" Brad Point or Forstner drill bit (hardware store item)
  • Coping saw or equivalent to cut the outline of the car body
  • Files - Flat, triangular, and Shoe Rasp (Hardware store item)
  • Wood chisel (1/2" or smaller)
  • 3-1/2 ounces of Flat Tundra
  • Turbo decal sheet was used to customize the car in the photo
