You can find them on our web site here: https://www.maximum-velocity.com/product/krytox-100/ https://www.maximum-velocity.com/wp-conten...

Krytox 100 Withdrawn by Manufacturer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...

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...

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!

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...

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