My son drew up the plans for his car and this is how it turned out.

Great job!

I remember winning 1st in the pinewood derby with probably the ugliest car there. Seems like every kid there had his dad do 99% of the work but my lil' ugly blue car came in first every time. The key was to take the nails that serve as the axles, put one end in a drill then use either rubbing compound or car wax and polish the #### out of them so they are silky smooth. Then add a drop of VERY light machine oil or maybe WD40. He'll win hands down with his Clemson mobile!

I polished mine with Emory clothe.... and worked graphite into the nails

2016 - 2017 season and nothing for nothing but the jerseys do / did have the 2017 logo.

Maybe he is optimistic about the 2017 season and calling it now. I appreciate his faith in the Tigers.

Great job but we are the 2016 National Champion and winner of the 2017 College Football Playoff. It's confusing. Not being a Smart ### it really is


Pinewood derby time always shows you

I'd buy that. Can you get one at fanatics. Is he selling those?

No, he drew up the design all on his own. We made our own stencils, etc.

Sweet. Good luck to him.


He won it all!

Across all heats, he only lost once! You guys are right. The trick is to polish the heck out of the axles!
