What is the difference between a pinewood derby car and a co2 dragster?

There are several differences. CO2 Dragsters (sometimes known as "Blast Cars") are longer and have thinner lighter wheels than Pinewood Derby cars. Also Pinewood Derby cars race using gravity as their only power, while C02 Dragsters use CO2 cartridges to power the car. The standard track size for a Pinewood Derby race is about 32 feet, while the track size area for a C02 Dragster is usually 80 feet or more. C02 Dragsters run on a filament string to guide them down the track, while most Pinewood Derby cars run on a center guide rail. C02 Dragsters usually can only run two cars at the same time due to the starting gates only being designed to accept two cars. Pinewood Derby cars on the average run on a four lane track (I've seen tracks as high as 12 lanes). There are very few C02 Dragster tracks that utilize an electronic finish line, while the majority of Pinewood Derby tracks use an electronic finish line. These are most of the differences between the two cars.

Which organization encourages boys to build their own pinewood derby car?

Building a pinewood derby car together can be a fun parent-child activity. Sites like the Boy Scouts of America offer a variety of templates and Scout Movement (WOSM) or other Scouting and Guiding Organizations. To help better answer your question, there are no organizations that encourage boys to "build their own" Pinewood Derby Car. The entire purpose of the Pinewood Derby activity is to help foster a relationship between a child and an adult. It's all about working to create something together that the adult/child "team" can be proud of. Although the racing of the cars is fun, it is actually irrelevant to the actual purpose. Pinewood Derby helps teach kids about what life is actually like. Not everyone can be a winner, but it doesn't mean you give up and you continue each year to strive for success. This is probably one of the hardest morals to teach in the Cub Scout environment. So, the question becomes, "how do we make Pinewood Derby a more pleasant experience for all involved?" The answer is to help level the playing field without restricting the adult/child team from "doing their best". Good rules (not the ones out of the box) are essential so that everyone understands what needs to be accomplished. Ample time to complete the project must be given and knowledge of making fast Pinewood Derby cars must be presented. A workshop should be devised so that everyone has equal access to proper wood working equipment. These actions are the responsibility of the organization. Any organization that hosts a Pinewood Derby without these actions are letting their members down. It is not enough now-a-days to just hand out kits and say "see you all on race day". More has to be done by the organization to see to it that everything is done within a fair environment. If everything is done right, losing a Pinewood Derby will only be by fractions of an inch, which is much easier for kids and adults to except, instead of being beaten by several feet. For more on this, check put some local Pinewood Derby forums.

What is the exact time of the race at the Kentucky Derby?

I was born on Derby Day in 1947 and have been trying to find out what time the race began. (It is called "post time") My parents told me that I was "breaking out of the starting gate at the same time as the horses on that day." They crossed the finish line but I'm still running the race.

What is the fastest time for a pine car?

17.45 mph If that is true, that is extremely fast. If you were to take a radar gun to a Pinewood Derby and clock the cars as they ran down the track, you'd find that most cars will obtain speeds from 7 to 9 mph. So if you are getting more than that, you are breaking all records. Also keep in mind that some Derby Race programs show higher mph because they scale the speed to how fast it would go if it was an actual full size car.
