Pinewood Derby day will soon be here (at least for our Pack). My husband and son are loving this project. Besides the kit, they have bought extras at the scout store and our nearby hobby store. Last year I bought a coping saw (looks like a capital D) that is used for cutting out the car. We also have two books:
Pinewood Derby Speed Secrets
Pinwood Derby Design Patterns
Last year our pack made a fun video called MythTesters. They tested different theories to see if they would work. The Tigers tested Pinewood Derby theories. Here is a link to their video:
We will see how it turns out this year!
