I’ve written this book to make it as easy as possible to make a winning pinewood derby car. Most of the techniques can be done with simple hand tools. I wanted to come up with some new techniques that any child could do. I also came up with some new ideas that an adult can help with. I started working with my son on his first pinewood derby car when he was five. We went to the library and found some great books. A lot of the ideas are very advanced for a five-year-old, so we thought we could figure out some new ideas on our own. It took five years and a lot of trial and error, but he finally won a first place trophy in our pinewood derby race. Now we can share some of these ideas to help you make the fastest car you can. Other books cover a lot of details on every aspect of pinewood derby. We are trying to help with some more new easy ideas. Always check to see if your race has rules added to the standard pinewood derby rules that come in your pinewood derby car box. I don’t want you to use some of these techniques and have your car disqualified. Finally, always read and follow the safety rules that come with the tools and machines you will use on your project.
