Weight placement is crucial to a fast Pinewood Derby Car! Maximize your weight distribution using tungsten bars. Tungsten is 1.7 times heavier/dense than lead.
If you want to build and race cars like the Pros, you'll want to use tungsten bars! These bars are manufactured from a higher purity tungsten than 0.25 cubes. Measuring 1.625"x0.50"x0.25" and weighing 2.3 ounces (65.3g), they weigh about the same as 14 of the traditional cubes while occupying a smaller space! Tungsten is non-toxic and environmentally friendly and can be handled safely by racers, young and old.
