The Making of the MV Pinewood Derby Wheel

For several years, Maximum Velocity has offered pinewood derby kits similar to kits offered by BSA, PineCar, et al. In the spring of 2010 we decided that the time had come to have our own “MV” wheels. The wheel needed to be very high quality, so we selected the best characteristics from the various wheels on the market. Find out about the design, tooling and manufacturing of the MV Pinewood Derby Wheel in Pinewood Derby Times Volume 11, Issue 8.
