Important – Read Before Ordering
- Wheels and axles are not included with the blocks.
- If you need the block to have four wheels on the ground, or plan to use Awana axles, then in addition to the block you will need to add a standard option to the shopping cart.
A high quality pine block with axles holes and weight holes for your shaping pleasure! The block is equipped with precision-drilled axle holes at an extended position. Three weight holes are drilled to accommodate cylindrical weight.
You will get top performance from these blocks!
- Precision Axle Holes – The axle holes are precision drilled to improve alignment and speed.
- Raised Axle Hole – The front-left axle hole is drilled slightly higher so that the car runs on three-wheels. Tests consistently prove that three-wheel cars are faster than four-wheel cars.
- Maximum Wheelbase – The axle holes are drilled to give the maximum length wheelbase. This increases stability, improves alignment, and enables the maximum benefit of weight placement.
The block measures:
Height: 1-1/4 inches
Width: 1-3/4 inches
Length: 7 inches
Hole Diameter: 13/32 inch

The block is equipped with precision-drilled axle holes. The holes are located 11/16″ from the end of the block and are drilled with a #44 bit (fits BSA axles). One front axle hole is slightly raised so that the car will ride on three wheels (best performance).
