Official Cub Scout BSA 2.5 degree bent and polished pinewood derby axles are used to cant the rear wheels of your car to make the wheels ride against the axle head rather than the car body where there is more friction. They are also used to create a rail rider car to keep the rear wheels away from the rail.
A 2.5 degree bent axle can be used as a steering axle, but we recommend Pinewood Pro’s 1.5 degree bent BSA axle instead for steering your car with more accuracy.
- Official BSA axles from the BSA Cub Scout kit
- Axles have been deburred and polished
