Re: Krytox 100 Withdrawn by Manufacturer

The issue really is viscosity. Most oils are too viscous, so they don't allow the wheel to spin freely.

Krytox 100 Withdrawn by Manufacturer

The Krytox family of lubricants (including GPL-100, aka Krytox 100) was sold by Dupunt to the Chemours Chemical Company. After the sale was complete, Chemours announced that they will no longer be manufacturing the light-weight oils, which includes Krytox 100, 101, and 102. So Krytox 100 is no longe...

Re: Underglow Lights

Not allowed in our District race....afraid it may interfere with the timer sensors Derbyworx did some testing of the lights - his report is below. The bottom line is that the underglow glows do not interfere with timers. We tested with a "Champ" and a "Micro-Wizard" timer, no issues. You (Maximum V...

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

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!
