Here is the easy way to add the main weight to your Pinewood racer! 3/8″ lead wire, about 5.75″ long and approximately 4 oz. in weight. More than enough for one car. Cut with wire snips or a hack saw, drill a hole and insert. Easy. Fill the opening with wood putty. This is an industrial product, not available in retail stores. Looks like a worm!
CAUTION: Although lead is not easily absorbed through the skin it is still a toxic material and handling precautions should be noted. Always wash your hands after use. Clean up afterwards and never use around food or place on surfaces where food is prepared. “And, keep your finger out of your mouth”. Click here to view MSDS
