    This years cars are way better than last years but I think the adults made them with no help from the boys though last years were still really good.

    Yep, a lot of parents beautiful jobs.

  7. As a Cubmaster, I have to agree. I would rather see less “art” and instead see the smiles of accomplishment on the boys faces when they have there car completed. The PD was never suppose to be about the accomplishment of the parents.

  8. There are maybe 10 of these cars that could possibly meet standard derby regulations and maybe of those, 5-7 were made by actual scouts and not their parents. While the art is lovely, it’s about the boys learning how to compete in a healthy and mature manner and how to work with basic tools to gain basic skills… too much leader involvement here. Never the less….amazing works of art.

    • you are right because last year I had a pinewood derby race and some cars where pre cut and alot where made by their dads

        well i let my parent cut out a basic design then i put stuff on it
        (some one else might cut it to)
        i put a rock monster on mine
        (from LEGO power miners)
        and i think it went faster!

    • Too true

  9. Did the kids make these? We would rather see the kids make them.

  10. These are great… but how many were really created primarily by the boys?
