Pinewood Derby Secrets
Pinewood Derby car racing involves skill, good carpentry and design. Lots of people think that, because of air resistance, a point at the front is streamlined. But according to science a curved front is the most streamlined. There are lots of ways of reduce drag. I put lead in the wheels (Do NOT pour the lead straight into the wheels) because if you add weight to the car it adds weight to the axles. The most weight in the car the better. It is better if the weight is in the back of the car. Look at drag for more details.
