Topic: Soap Box Derby Design
Have made a scale mock up of a design for a car to race in the Portland Adult SBD race in 2016. Will post a picture soon. Will also bring it to the next race that I can make.
All wood construction off a 3/4 inch furniture grade floorboard with International SBD wheels, axles and hardware. The Physics Forum says fastest cars heavy with light wheels. 9 feet long and less than 2 feet high or wide. A flying wedge. Call it the "Hawksbill Flyer". Will build it at my place over the next year. Need a team of 4 and one volunteer to help. This WILL happen. Let me know if interested. No promises other than a really fast competitive car. NOT making a gag car or float. Could race at other venues.
Let me know if interested.
