    I think any time a Cub Scout and his parent work together is valuable. Of course it’s better if a Cub does most of the work. I’m not going to disqualify a kid’s car because his dad helped too much. For some of these kids, the pinewood derby is one of the few events that the parents bother getting involved with.

    Maybe there should be a race for the Parents? Let the Scouts make their own cars.

    awesome cars i like the stapler one

  13. pinewood fan says:

    These cars are too detailed to be from a cub scouts hands. Did they change the rules? When I was a kid, the kids were required to do most, I’d not ALL of the work on their cars. Cars like these would have been disqualified for too much adult participation. Why not let the adults have their own race, but let the kids built their own cars for crying out loud. Building and racing my car was a memorable experience. All these kids will remember is “look at the car my dad built for me”

  14. No name says:

    I would like one that the parents only helped 5% with.

    These cars are amazing

  37. CubMom says:

    Troops in our area have begun doing “Outlaw” / “Parent” races so the parents can race against each other. This year, the winning parent car will race the winning scout car, too. It would be nice it see the cars get back to the kids doing the bulk of the project, not the parents. Although the above cars are awesome, I’m pretty sure kids didn’t make them! =)
