My daughter’s first Pine Wood Derby as a Cub Scout. In her words, “I want the big trophy”. We will see how it goes. She did a lot of the work. I cut the shape since scouts can’t use power saws, but she sanded and painted it, smoothed the axles and wheels, put in the weights and tail. I mounted the wheels to the car. My son won a couple of times as a cub, so my daughter, who is pretty competitive wants to as well.

Edit: she came in 4th out of 50. 0.021 sec behind first.
