Weights for AWANA® Cars
The more your AWANA car weighs, the faster it will go. Most rules specify a 5 oz. maximum weight. A car may need 3 oz or more of additional weight depending on how much wood is removed when you shape your car. Add as much weight as you can near the back of the car for fastest speeds.

Our weights are available in a variety of shapes and metals. Each metal has its advantages and disadvantages. The following table will help you to decide which metal you would like to use.

Here are the main advantages and disadvantages of each metal:

  Advantages Disadvantages
