What is diecast racing?
Do you remember the Pinewood Derby? It's like that but with Hot Wheels, Matchbox and other diecast toy cars. Find a car you think is fast and make it faster. Then mail in your cars and race against people in tournaments happening all across the country.

Making fast cars faster
We take the fun of the Pinewood Derby and shrink it down to Hot Wheels size. You might get lucky and find a fast car at the store, or you can create your own speed. We'll help you learn how to modify, build, and customize your cars for the track.
