Rat Rod Derby Car Kit

The Rat Rod is a super throwback blast from the past. This is one of the most awesome looking Pinewood Derby car kits ever. If your rules require your car to have the standard BSA wheelbase, or require your car to have the standard BSA axle slots, then this will be a super fast and super cool looking car kit for you. As with all of our Xtreme Speed Series cars, the body design, weight placement, center of gravity, alignment and aerodynamics are all optimized for top performance. Its super sleek design and great looks will have your competitors turning their heads when it enters the room.

The greatest thing about this car is the Tungsten Skull Canopy thats available in your choice of either Nickle, Gold or Black. This 3 oz tungsten weight is shaped like a skull for a super cool 3-D look. Matched with the awesome graphics in the full body decal makes this a car that no one will soon forget. The kit also comes with two self-stick red prism eyes so you can attach them to the skull for a super freaky look. The Tungsten Skull Canopy not only offers good looks but it also places the Center of Gravity at the optimum location for a super fast car.

The Rat Rod meets all BSA Pinewood Derby regulations. It comes with the standard BSA wheelbase location and is available with precision drilled axle holes or standard BSA axle slots.Get the complete Easy-to-Build kit with all necessary components to build a precision engineered racing machine and blow the door off the competition (wheels & axles not included).

Please check your local Pinewood Derby rules to determine exactly what car kits, components and configurations are permitted for your particular race as Cub Scout rules differ from one pack to another.

PAINTING TIPS: The body on the Rat Rod in the photos was first sanded smooth. We then spray painted it with white primer. We then taped off the top of the body and spray painted the sides with flat black paint. After the decals were applied and dried we spray painted the entire car body with Testors Dull Coat Clear Enamel. We took black wheels (not included in the kit) and taped off the outer tread. We then spray painted the outside of the wheels/spokes gloss red. We then placed 7/8" adhesive dots (Office Depot #837-594) in the center of the wheels to cover the spokes. We then painted the wheel sidewalls white. Then removed the tape and dots.
  • Rat Rod Pinewood Derby Car Features Include:

    Laser Cut Body: This pine body is pre-cut and ready to sand, paint and apply decals. It has been precision cut with a CNC guided laser for perfect balance, symmetry and accuracy.
    Extreme Aerodynamics: It has been scientifically proven that aerodynamics plays a huge role in the speed of a Pinewood Derby car. This body is cut to only ¼” thick for extreme aerodynamics and greater speed.
    Optimized Center of Gravity: The body design, weight pockets and included tungsten skull canopy & cubes allow for a very short and aggressive center of gravity (COG). The shorter the COG the faster any car will go.
    Tungsten Skull Canopy & Cubes for Weight: This kit comes with a tungsten skull and the precise amount of tungsten cubes to get this car to its ideal racing weight. Tungsten is the best material for weighting Pinewood Derby cars. It is denser than lead, making it heavier, allowing you to pack more weight at the back of the car shortening its COG and making it faster.
    Axle Holes or Axle Slots: This car comes with your choice of either precision drilled axle holes or precision cut axle slots. If your rules permit axle holes then go with this option. These axle holes are precision drilled on a machine jig to ensure that all four holes are perfectly straight, square to the body and parallel to each other. This eliminates wheel binding and allows for a much faster car. If your rules require you to use the original axle slots then select this option.
    Raised Left Front Axle: If you select the axle holes option, the left front axle hole is drilled slightly higher than the other three. Rolling on only three wheels decreases the start-up inertia required to get the car up to speed. So, the car reaches its top speed sooner.
    Standard BSA Wheelbase: The axle holes/slots on this kit are drilled/cut at the exact BSA Pinewood Derby original location.
    Rat Rod Full Body Decal/Skin: This kit comes with the Rat Rod full body decal (as shown) for some super cool looking custom graphics. Use this included decal or create your own unique design. You can select different decals from our huge decal selection.
    Meets BSA Pinewood Derby Regulations: This car meets all BSA Pinewood Derby dimensional and weight requirements. The optional BSA wheels and axles are all BSA Pinewood Derby approved products… its BSA legal (check your local rules to make sure what car kits, components and configurations are permitted for your particular race).
    Wheels and axles are not included in this kit and must be purchased separately.
