Cub Scout Pinewood Derby Grand Prix Racing Car Construction

Pay very careful attention to safety, have a qualified adult perform all cutting!


Cut the 1/2" sides for the car from light pine..  Regulations permit a total width of 2 3/4". Main block with cut sides.  If judges give a problem with sides, refer to the instruction manual that has an advertisement for accessories selling sides. Cut wheel wells with hole saw. Keep all parts dry and away from water, which can increase weight.
Check that parts match up. Carefully cut main block and sides. Check alignment. Main block will need to be hollowed to compensate for weight added by sides.
Drill pilot holes for coping saw. Hollowed main block. Preassembly.
