That year we made two cars. One for the Show category and one for the Speed category.
Too many photos to upload here so check out the link for inspiration if you would like to build your own.
A lot more here to see since I took on more responsibility.

Kind of reminds me of the Mach 5 racecar from that old cartoon “Speed racer”. Neat design.

for our Pack April 2016 Pinewood Derby, my Grandson’s flag car was the Pack 1st Place winner! I assisted my Grandson with his car and we stopped when he did all that an 8 year old could do… then I tuned the Sapele/Ash car for speed and was soundly defeated by a few of the other dads as well as the Pack Cub Scout awards podium winners.
