Our new Design Your Own Balsa Grand Prix Racers kits are easy to shape and race. No glue or tools are necessary for the build up of our Design Your Own Balsa Grand Prix Racers. They are designed to run on all gravity tracks, including the easy to set up gutters as well as the Pine Wood Derby tracks. (Note: Our Design Your Own Balsa Grand Prix Racers are not legal to participate in the official Pine Wood Derby.)
The Design Your Own Balsa Grand Prix Racers kit consists of a pre-drilled balsa wood block with 7.5″ in length, 4 hardwood grooved wheels with racing slicks, two axles and two axle tubes. Sandpaper for rough and fine sanding is included.
Young racers can easily shape the balsa block to their favorite shape with the sandpaper supplied or even use a potato peeler (Yes, a potato peeler!) under adult supervision.
Get one or two pieces of plastic gutter at your local home improvement/hardware store and you have perfect downhill launch tracks for side by side racing and much more as explained in the instructions accompanying the kits.
Our kits are made in USA and are a over 90% green product.
