EASY Pinewood Derby Car WINS using Science!!!
7 simple steps that ACTUALLY MATTER to building a winning pinewood derby car. I built a car in 45 minutes using these steps and crushed all the competition by more than 2 car lengths (proof is in the video 🙂 Special thanks to Steve at DerbyMonkey.com for providing his expertise and materials for the video.
HERE’S HOW I MADE THE ROCKET CAR:
7 Key Steps:
1. Max weight ~1″ in front of rear axle
2. Reasonably aerodynamic
3. Ride on 3 wheels
4. Lightweight wheels
5. Bent polished axles
7. Lots o’ graphite
