Talking with my nieces husband which he's very into this racing with his two boys never did i realised how involved it is. .5 dram of wheel oil $30+ and theres more. This is no difference than any other type of racing.

My son and I won the local pinewood derby. Our car wasn't far from the best looking but it went fast. We used dry graphite lube.

I've heard a lot of racers hook a motor up to the wheels and run them awhile so that the wheel bearings get real loose. True?
