The design of this pinewood derby car was kept to a weight limit of near about 5 ounces. The key point here is that the designers wanted to make sure that the car is kept as much close as possible to the weights so that when weight is added to the car the momentum will increase which in turn will increase the speed of the car. They placed the weights in the back half of the car so that the car’s speed is maximized.
