Nearly every once skips this step. 20 minutes of work = faster speeds as much as 0.010-0.015 seconds. So simple you cubber can do it.
Pinewood Derby Wheel Polish Kit
Simple, no smoke and mirrors. No inflated costs. Guaranteed results. Get fast pinewood derby cars. You can hear and see the difference. Increases speed, decreases overall time on my track around .01-.015 seconds on 30.75 feet measuring distance. No reason you can’t get 30+ second spin times with this kit. we do! Definitely a major difference. We added an additional polish step to get that “mirror” finish that everyone wants! No cheap “pipe cleaners” with metal cores utilized. Why would we chance scratching the hub?

Takes about 30 minutes of work, 30 minutes of drying time to complete a wheel set. Great weekend project for the kid.
Drill required for application
Wheels are cleaned, then polishing compound is buffed in with high speed drill and high density natural polishing spears.
Once polish is applied, the polished is buff clean and wheel is allowed to dry.
Once dry, the wheel goes through a final buffing process that makes the wheel’s bore pop to a nice and shiny surface. Wheels have spun for approx 15 seconds without any lube applied. The polish is that good! And then I realized there was a missing step. I spent the summer doing some research and designed a dry lube blend used to coat the surface areas of wheel and axle rub. This lube is especially designed so that will permanently imbed in the surface of the plastic wheel. It CAN”T be blown off with compressed air once buffed in! We don’t sell gimmicks. I know this process yields results.
