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! 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:

  • Optimal quantity of weight
  • Optimal weight placement for both the standard (scouting) wheel base and the extended wheel base (Click here for more information about Wheel Bases)
  • A base design and two options

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 19 helpful drawings and diagrams.

The three plans in the Car Plans booklet are relatively simple to build, thus, they are ideal for those who have had limited experience with woodworking and with pinewood derby racing.

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.
