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...

I would not prohibit her racing, as long as separate car is built for each event.

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.

Re: BSA Wheels and axles

The reason for the size of our speed axles is to fit in BSA-size slots and holes. If the diameter was larger then they would be too tight. Awana axles are larger, but so are the slots on the Awana block. A better solution would be for BSA to reduce the diameter of the wheel bore to better fit it axle.
