Pro-Axle Guide
for Pinewood Derby Cars

Accurately mounted axles = Top speed!

In pinewood derby racing, winners and also-rans are often separated by fractions of an inch. Although many factors affect car performance, precision alignment is key to reaching the winner's circle.

Unfortunately, inserting axles into axle slots is not easy. The axles don't want to insert straight, the wood can easily break, and setting the proper gap can be tricky. There must be a better way.

And there is! Introducing the Pro-Axle Guide1, a precision machined device that will improve the speed of your pinewood derby car by ensuring accurate mounting of axles:
  1. Axle Insertion - Ensures accurate mounting of axles (in axle slots) to improve alignment. Accurate alignment is critical for top speed!

  2. Wheel-to-body Spacing - Establishes the correct gap between the wheel hub and car body. The proper gap minimizes car wander and reduces excess contact between the car body and the wheel hubs.

and an added bonus:
  1. Reduced Risk of Block Damage - During the insertion process the Pro-Axle Guide provides support to the wood around the axle slot, minimizing the risk of damage.

Tip: Use the Pro-Body Tool to prepare the axle slots before using the Pro-Axle Guide to insert the axles.
