ALWAYS BRINGING NEW IDEAS TO THE CONCEPT.  LEXX HAS MASTERED POLISHING PINEWOOD DERBY AXLES TO THE OPTICAL LEVEL.

Lexx from Derby Dust has mastered the 100K  OPTICAL POLISH!  And man he has been setting track records since then.  

Even better!!!! LISTEN!!!!

Our prepped have been deburred, shaped, straightened and sanded down to a 2000 grit finish. From that point, each axle goes through a buffing process up to 100,000 grit OPTICAL FINISH!  We use separate buffing wheels to ensure no cross contamination. Then we seal the prepped axle with a Krytox sealing agent. Through our professional, industry leading, lubrication resources, we have found a substance that binds Krytox to metal. That's right a metal sealing agent that has one of the most friction less substances known to pinewood derby racing. This is NOT putting a drop krytox oil on it. This is binding Krytox to the surface of the metal. 

You can't even buy 2 of the tools needed to do this for under $25. Much less the files sandpaper, sealer, and buffing materials.

We are getting average speeds of 12.45+ feet per second out of these sets or 2.47's or less on a 30.75 foot metal track with DRY LUBE!

Get even FASTER speeds with lighter wheels.

 

With speeds of 15+ fps on the last 10 feet of the track.  WITH OUR GRAPHITE DRY LUBE

No reason you can't do the same. 

Axles are wrapped in tissue paper to ship to ensure that your axles are not scratched up during shipping process.
