The guys at Fox Chapel Publishing just handed me 8 sets of these awesome Pinewood Derby books. They’re looking for the most diabolical derby car out there. Can you build it?

Here’s the deal: Start with a standard Cub Scouts Pinewood Derby kit and then go crazy. Build the car that would beat all others, no matter what. Gunpowder? Sure! Internal engines (rubber band, battery operated, whatever) are legal. Devices that slow down, mess up or totally destroy the competition are encouraged as well. The first 8 submissions will get the books!

Send your pictures and descriptions me at and the best submissions will be added to the site. Who knows, maybe we’ll all get together for a few beers and actually battle it out with these suckers someday!

Stay weird my friends

Diabolical Dave
