Major Wedgie Pinewood Derby Car Body
The wedge has been a very popular derby car body style since the very beginning of the Pinewood Derby back in 1953. This smooth body is just as popular today because of its sleek aerodynamic shape. Derby Monkey took this basic wedge shape and modified it for better looks and greater speed.
You can easily build a super fast Pinewood Derby car with this precut pine body. Low profile and aerodynamic with an extended wheelbase, the Major Wedgie body is geared toward speed. All of our 3/8" dia cylinder weights fit its pre-drilled weight cavities including our lead wire, steel cylinders, zinc round weights and tungsten cylinders.
This super fast body comes with precision drilled axle holes that are perfectly straight, square with the car body and parallel to each other.
The Major Wedgie satisfies all BSA Pinewood Derby dimensional requirements and is also available with official BSA Pinewood Derby wheels and axles.
This super fast body is precision cut and ready-to-finish for those who want a great looking, great racing car but may not have the necessary tools or skills. Just sand and paint.
