Very neat carboard box restoration you did, as well as engine restorations.

I'm thinking about building a track for the three.  1/4" plywood 1.5X8' steamed into undulations.  Guides? Sand at the bottom. Carbon Tet..........Smile

They're getting all the $$ for those car kits.. Shocked and also the separate accessories.. Granted the pre-shaped/CNC formed body and wheels trued on a CNC lathe are "trick".. but now a kid is prone to thinking they have to spend that kind of money just to be competitive. Maybe those "Maximum Velocity" kits and any other similar-type kits should run in a separate Pinewood Derby class?

When I was in the scouts, you had to purchase your car from the shops that sold scout apparel and goods. In addition, everyone had the same kit, I see this CNC kit being a advantage over what I recall being a kit. There was nothing pre sanded, even using the word shaped would be a stretch. Essentially you received a block of pine with two small dados across the bottom, 4 wheels and escutcheon pins for axles. This was a not too exceed $$$ event. You purchased the kit which essentially any money raised went back into your council. Your parents were allowed to offer help and advice, you the builder had to shape it, assemble it and paint it. I still have mine . I remember about 10 of us sitting all around the table at the den mother's house assembling these cars.
