A soap box derby car I built for my 3rd year of racing. It features 4 wheel steering and can turn on a dime. The steering is controlled with high tension cables to minimize accidental over-steer.

  • Nice work! I want to build this for my daughter or just a larger version for myself. We have the Magnolia St Derby here in Macon GA every year. This car would be perfect! Do you have plans/specs for it?

  • Digger - I have about $300 in it. Most of the money is in the hardware. All the wood for this car was $30
