Derbywizard Freedom Track Specifications and Price List

Derbywizard is pleased to provide precision anodized aluminum race tracks for Pinewood Derbies. The tracks are designed with strict attention to engineering details. The tracks are tested at the factory and are guaranteed to maintain precision racing surfaces. Considerable emphasis has been placed on ease of assembly.

Lanes: 2,3,4 or 6. Lanes are on 3 1/2" centers.
Length: Standard - 32', 40' or 48'.

Please contact us about wider and longer tracks. We will quote on an individual basis.

 

High Quality Construction

To offer the best tracks you have to start with the best material. Our all aluminum 'Freedom Series' tracks are extruded on our own custom designed die from 6061-T6511 aluminum. We specified this material for it's resistance to corrosion and it's relatively high surface hardness. We took great care in designing cross sectional thicknesses to insure against the denting and nicking prevalent in other aluminum tracks. All our tracks are anodized to protect the surface from oxidation.


You may call our office to request a free sample of our track to see for yourself the quality and workmanship of our products.

Cub Scout Standards

Our tracks are based on Cub Scout Leader How To Book specifications with lanes on 3-1/2" centers. Primary exceptions are additional reinforcement between sections, stronger support structures and mechanical fasteners instead of wood screws

Modular Lane Construction

The aluminum 'Freedom Series' tracks are built and shipped as individual 3-1/2" x 8' lanes. This allows you the option of adding lanes as your pack size and budget increase. It also facilitates inexpensive and damage-free shipping. The lanes are initially assembled in a 'tongue-and-groove' fashion. They are then secured at each end by flush fitting aluminum binding plates. The 'binding plates' have non-stripping mechanical blind 'PEM-serts' embedded in them. A 'one-time' assembly calls for you to nest the track sections together (2 to 6) lanes and bolt through a relief in the 'car-guide' section into the 'binding plates'.

Mechanical Fasteners / Weight Rack

All parts feature non-stripping mechanical 'PEM-sert' fasteners. Assembly and disassembly of the pre-aligned sections and support structures can be done quickly. A special weight rack induces the curvature in the track and facilitates positive seating against the floor. Please note: We do not provide the two 10lbs weightlifting plates specified. If someone does not have these in their basement it will be a $10 purchase at Sears or Wal-mart. We could not ship them for that amount.

Reinforced Section Joints

Each of the eight-foot sections are connected by overlapping 1/8" thick aluminum 'joining plates'. These plates are 12" long and the width of the track. They are 'CNC' machined for accuracy and embedded with threaded 'PEM-serts'. Assembly of the sections is done from above. You bolt the track sections to the plates through a relief in the 'car-guides'. This assures positive vertical and lateral alignment between the sections. In addition, the plates prevent slope changes at the joints and thus eliminate track 'bumps'.

Starting Gate

The cars start at rest against stainless steel pins protruding through slots in the track. These pins are affixed to a spring loaded aluminum hinge. Tripping a small catch quickly rotates the pins beneath the track and releases the cars.

Car Brakes

The cars are prevented from running off the end of the track by means of a specially designed braking section. This unit is designed and race-proven to stop the cars quickly while protecting them from damage. The cars slide up a raised rubber grid and are cushioned against a foam barrier.

Storage

Once the modular (3-1/2") lanes have been assembled the track will not fit back into the UPS shipping cartons. We provide plans for you to easily build your own hard storage case that is only 6" tall. You can take our 'cut list' to any home center (e.g. Home Depot or Lowes) and have them make (for free) the difficult straight cuts in the plywood top and bottom pieces. You will come home with a 'kit' that can be easily assembled using sheetrock screws. We have contemplated selling cases but think the price (especially shipping) would be prohibitive. The track is easily disassembled for storage. The four (standard 32' track) sections are removed from the reinforcing 'joining plates'. The starting line supports fold up with the first track section. You can download the Storage Case Instructions here.

Additional Lanes

The modular way we designed the Freedom Series Aluminum track allows you to expand the lanes on your track as your pack and budget grows. You can start with a two lane this year and grow to a three lane or four lane two years from now.
Some of our assembly components are width specific; e.g. the starting gates. Please call our office for pricing information
