7 simple steps that ACTUALLY MATTER to building a winning pinewood derby car. I built a car in 45 minutes using these steps and crushed all the competition by more than 2 car lengths (proof is in the video :) Special thanks to Steve at DerbyMonkey.com for providing his expertise and materials for the video.

HERE'S HOW I MADE THE ROCKET CAR: http://youtu.be/vlBxPjxacsk

7 Key Steps:
1. Max weight ~1" in front of rear axle
2. Reasonably aerodynamic
3. Ride on 3 wheels
4. Lightweight wheels
5. Bent polished axles
6. Railride/alignment
7. Lots o' graphite
