How to Use this Product

Tungsten Bars can be easily used for pinewood derby car weighting by drilling a series of 1/4 inch deep holes in the bottom of the car and then using a chisel or sharp knife to clean out the pocket. Since the Tungsten Bars are very hard, do not plan to cut off or drill out any extra weight. Instead, use an alternate method to make fine adjustments such as adding/removing tungsten putty, beads, etc.
