Here in Arizona fall is finally in the air, and it is time for pinewood derby racing. Just in time for the season, we are announcing three new products and a one time special offer to help you have a great race:
Triangular Tungsten Canopy - This 2.5 ounce triangular canopy is very low profile, looks sharp, and readily mounts on your pinewood derby car.
Paint Stand - Finally, a paint stand for pinewood derby cars that is easy to use, and works on virtually any car! This paint stand not only holds your car securely, but also allows you to hold the car in any position while painting.
Wheel Flares - Wow! Decals for your wheels. These Wheel Flare kits include dry transfer decals for the sidewall of the wheels and the nail head, and cardboard wheel covers in two sizes and two designs. Use them together or separately.

Randy-curious about the paint stand; what's the diameter of the pins that enter the axle holes?I use either a 43, 44 or 66 bit depending on the axle. Also if the axle holes are canted is there a risk of distorting the canal by the way the holding pins are angled?
Good questions. The wire is sized to fit standard BSA slots, or axle holes drilled with a #44 bit (it would work with #43 as well).
If you use canted holes, you might want to put a slight bend on the wires to better align with the holes. The wire is stiff, but bendable so that you can match the wheelbase of your car, and the angle of the hole.
