GRM Instructions






The GRM is a full motion mechanism specifically designed for the Freedom Pinewood Derby track made by MicroWizard. It operates by remote control to start your race with nobody near the track. The actuating component is a rotary solenoid which pulls the Freedom's peg bar by a brass pull rod.

The GRM is unique in that it mounts with no fastener devices.The two aluminum rails fit precisely into the contours of the track, and the ends are trapped by the gate and the upper joining bar. It's a beautiful fit for a beautiful track.
