Underglow Lights

Just got some Underglow Lights in stock - they add a lot of pizzazz to a car, but only a small amount of weight ( .24 oz). https://www.maximum-velocity.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/pinewood-derby-car-lights-2.jpg https://www.maximum-velocity.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/pinewood-derby-car-llight...

I just found this short video of the Pinewood Classic that was made by "Brad's Big Adventures". At 2:25 into the video you will see my son Tim and me being interviewed by Brad - too bad, he edited out all of the speed tips I shared with him!

Re: Pinewood Derby Times, Volume 18, Issue 8 - January 9, 2019

CONGRATULATIONS ! Good Job. Do you have a picture of the winning car? Was there anything done to the car that "stood out" to give it speed? Unfortunately no photo. By the time the end of the race came, things were a bit chaotic, and I did not get a close look at the car. I know it was extended, bac...

Re: Pinewood Derby Times, Volume 18, Issue 6 - December 12, 2018

Nice topic! A little surprised you didn't mention any of the runout testing tools that can be either built or purchased. Thanks - glad you enjoyed it. I did mention tools in passing ("Barring an expensive test jig"), but I wanted to focus the article on spin testing, which is what the vast majority...

Re: BSA Wheels and axles

Since you raised the possibility, why aren't the Max-V wheels made with tighter bores, then?
I set the bore size to the smallest it could be and still fit the Pro-Hub Tool.
