Many Cub Scout Packs have a parent division for racing cars. Our pack did and it really was fun for me, a parent, constructing a legal cool car to race in the parents division and even better yet if it wins, “for bragging rights”. You and your son can both have cars that stand out from the rest of the crowd.
When you get your Derby Car kit at the pack meeting, just substitute this wooden car for the one in the package. The wheel wells have been cut out and properly installed wheels will not rub anywhere on the body except the hub where every car does. Design note: If you can, design your car to roll on just three of its four wheels, less friction means a faster car! Polish up those axles! Trust me on this, it does work!
All of these McQueen's weigh less than 5 ounces and you will most likely want to add in some weight to achieve the 5 ounce weight limit.
You will receive the wooden car like what’s in the photo. You will have to cut, change, sand, and paint the car to your specifications. The car you receive may not be the one in the photo and may not be a perfect piece of pinewood. It may have a knot or cut line that needs to be sanded. If you’re unhappy with what we send, let us know and we’ll try to make it right. Remember this is all for fun!

You will have to ensure that your car is 5 ounces or under when finished. These cars have axel holes not slots like the BSA blocks. Before buying, check with your pack to see if these are allowed. These were allowed in our pack and other packs from the Northern Star District of
