Below are the official pinewood derby rules I used for our BSA Cub Scout Pack pinewood derby race.
For our Cub Scout Pack races, we inspected each car at weigh-in on race day and once weighed in no changes may be made.
We weighed each car with the "official scale" and turned back any car that exceeded 5.0 oz. We then did a quick visual inspection of each car against the following inspection points:
Car Dimension Rules
The overall length of the car shall not exceed 7 inches.
The overall width of the car shall not exceed 2 ¾ inches.
The car must have 1 ¾” clearance between the wheels.
The car must have 3/8” clearance underneath the body so it does not rub on the track.
Derby Car Weight Rules
The car shall not exceed 5.0 ounces.
The official race scale that is used at car check-in shall be considered final.
Car Modifications Not Allowed
The official pine wood block must be used. The block may be shaped in any way that is desired.
Official BSA wheels must be used. The wheels may not be cut, drilled, beveled or rounded. You may remove the seams and imperfections from the wheels.
The axles may be altered, polished and lubricated.
The most anticipated event of the scouting year! Derby cars are passed out at the start of the scouting year.
