Pinewood Derby Lead Weights
Tungsten weights are said to be the best weight for a Pinewood Derby car. These weights are not actually lead, which is much of the reason they are the preferred type since the material is heavier, allowing small pieces that can be strategically placed to regulate the center of gravity. Tungsten weights are greater density than lead (1.7 times) and zinc (2.8 times), making it easier to concentrate your weights. Derby Champ features the highest quality sintered tungsten ranging in the 18.1 gram per cc range and polished for excellent fit and finish, allowing the builder the ability to put the most weight in the smallest area for the greatest potential energy. Our Derby car weights come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes to suit any and all needs. You just drill the right sized hole and glue them in.
