  • Challenger Features

    Laser Pre-cut Body: This pine body is 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 cubes allow for a very short and aggressive center of gravity (COG). The shorter the COG the faster any car will go.

    Tungsten Cubes for Weight: This kit comes with 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.

    Challenger Decal: This kit comes with the Challender 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 purchases separately.

5 of 5 First Place! March 16, 2016
Reviewer: Paul Menard from Plymouth, MA United States  
Thanks for being there Derby Monkey! My son and I had an unexpected issue on a Tuesday night before the race which was Sunday. with the very helpful and accommodating Lori, I got my order in just in the nick of time on Friday afternoon. We did not have the luxury of taking our time, so we jumped right on it! We had it assembled, glued, painted and completely finished by 11am Sunday morning. Registration was at 11:30am, we raced at high noon, and lo and behold, we came in First Place!! Thank you Lori and thank you Derby Monkey! You will most definitely be hearing from us again next year!

5 of 5 2016 Pinewood Derby Overall Winner! January 27, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Southern California  
We picked this kit because we couldn't access our tools this year to carve out our car. We liked the slim profile and shape of this design and we liked that we could easily customize it for our needs. We came in fourth the last two years, even after many hours trying to optimize our car. We were shocked to win the entire event this year as we didn't spend half the time we spent the last couple years. This car made it easy to optimally place the weight and since it was fully built by regulation, we had no trouble with our race. Highly recommend!
