Pinewood Derby Speed Wheels – Derby Dust Black Ops Wheels


Pinewood Derby Speed Wheels – Black Ops is a faster lighter pinewood derby wheel that has been winner winner chicken dinner for some time now.   After a few years with the 2009 mold,  we saw a set of new rules forming nation wide.  We looked over those rules and decided to bring together a few modifications we thought will give an advantage but still be within written rules. After a few machining revisions and tools changes, our first weight reduced wheel now comes in weighing at the industry standard.

  • Mold Match
  • Reduced surface area 2 step outer bore
  • Flawless inner bore
  • Machined lathed true outer diameter
  • Gradual tapered inner wheel wall weight reduction that leaves factory width with factory edge thickness
  • Average Wheel Weight of 1.5g per wheel.


Other Options Include:

  • Polished Inner Bores
