SST Super Slim & Trim. The body of the SST is about the same width as the original Pinewood Racers made in the 1950's and 60's, around 1 1/4".
the thickness of the body is about half the thickness of a regular Racer, around 5/8" thick. The symmetrical profile looks really fast*. The Racer is so light that it comes with our 3.5 .oz weight and an extra 1/2 oz of copper coated steel BB's. We have drilled holes in the body for the BB's. Each BB weighs 1/88 of an ounce. Just put BB's in the holes to bring the Racer to the maximum weight, screw the car weight to the bottom to cover the holes.
*Will this Racer be faster than another racer that is larger? No one knows. Fast Racers take time and patience. Polishing all parts, wheel alignment, lubrication, and a bit of luck, are all you need.
Our SST is cut with tools most people donâ€™t own. Such as a table saw, radial arm saw,and a band saw. You can now spend more time with a child finishing the Racer.
