Looking on YouTube, there are some interesting Pinewood Derby videos. Here's a few.

I was rather surprised with this one. The cluttered garage you see is mine. :mrgreen: :oops: I held workshops for two packs (ours and another) the last couple of years in my garage. This boy was from the other pack.

Quite a lot of bounce back on those cars at the finish. :shock:

Part 1 and 2 of a scout's journey to building his car and the ultimate payoff.

There are quite a few others to check out.

"I didn't know that pickles had wheels." I love it!

Thanks for sharing. I'm looking forward to starting our derby season in a couple months!

This one has "spy camera" footage from the car's perspective.

It is interesting seeing and hearing things from that perspective.

Well, PWD cars don't "come off the trees" with wheels either. They are added by a hopeful builder.

I don't really care for their start gate or stop section, but the boys looked to have had a fun time.

Pinewood Derby Special Report!

A "gift of the season" can be found at this link in the form of a Cub Scouting video made by Cubs (and a parent) in Northern Lights District, Pack 751. Enjoy!

I especially like the old style stop section. :roll: A friend of ours had his son's car break when it's pointy nose got under the foam and hit one of the bolts that held it in place. The new drop away stop sections are much better.

Great video though!!
