BestTrack® Space Derby ®Tracks
Our 4 lane Space DerbyÒ Track is designed with fairness & fun in mind. The start gate will hold the wound up rocket propellers and rockets in place, releasing them all at the same time. Stands at both ends of the track hold the race lines under equal tension.
Complete with start tower, start gate, and finish
tower with weight straps.
Additional items you will need:
1. You will need to purchase a Space DerbyÒ Accessory Kit, which includes 300 feet of spooled monofilament line for the track, four space derby carriers, and a swivel snap to prevent the line from coiling. You will also need Space DerbyÒ rocket kits. These items are available from your local Scout supplier or the BSA website at: scoutstuff.org.
2. Four 10 lb Olympic style barbell plate weights and two 5 lb Olympic style barbell plate weights. Be sure that they have the large 2 inch “Olympic” style hole through the middle. These are used to hold the stands in place and to also add tension to the racing lines. Because of the shipping charges that would be incurred, it is more economical for you to purchase these weights locally. These weights are available from discount stores such as Wal-Mart and Fleet Farm.

Some ideas about winders:
Our local pack uses a hand drill to speed up winding while still being able
to count turns of the crank to keep things fair. We use a Fiskars hand drill
