    It was red just before I hit the intersection. I thought "well, this is it, I'm going to die soapbox racing". It turned green just as I crossed the line.

    We had lots of camera failure on that run, thus less good footage.

    the last race was total chaos. 24 cars to start, 12 on the second heat, tons of wrecks! Ouch! My head!

  6. I was wondering what's up with the beards but then I remembered the "illegal" part of you organization.

    Looks like WAY too much fun!!! Any idea how fast some of the speeds reach? From that low perspective it looks like you guys are hauling ass.

    It's a topic for debate as calibration of speed recording devices is an issue. Slower hills 40 ish, fastest 55-60 mph. Somewhere around there, it feels hell o fast when you're inches off the ground though!

    That's some crazy shit! Is there a website or something?
    I gotta ask, though.....if it's the "illegal" soap box federation, why did I see a squad car in one of the vids, just before the start of the race?

    BTW.....killer editing and sound clips.....keep it up.

    It's illegal as in not an official soapbox race that has a governing body to enforce strict rules on car construction etc. We do attract police, but it falls into a gray area, they don't know what to make of it.

    I thought the beards were to poke fun at the one racer who has a long beard. Hence the comment, "You disgust me!"

    Or maybe I'm just reading too much into this soapbox zeitgeist thingie.

    My buddy and I will be there for the race on the 8th. Whether we have a car to bring with us is yet to be seen. I'm trying to figure out how to combine a steel tractor hood with a blowmolded bicycle trailer... and not die.

    Everytime I see these threads, I start looking funny at the stack of 3/4" x 3/4" steel in my garage...I think it gets kind of creeped out with my stares and drooling. One of these freakin' days, man. One of these freakin' days.....
     
  18. Oh yeah.........thats rock and roll.
    Im inspired now, i just sent an e-mail to my car fiends calling them out to buid one and race me............hahahahaha

    Rukus.

    You gotta set up a web site.

    I'd never watched one and my wife was down here as I clicked it. When it came up and said it was over 7 minutes long she said 'are you going to sit here and watch that whole thing?' in a disgusted tone. Then she sat here and watched it with me. Twice! Awesome fun. We live in the Lake Erie basin and it is FLAT for MILES and MILES. We have to do pinewood derby around here because there are no hills for soapbox!

    Sounds like it would be a great vacation!

    Yeah... I don't like OT posts... I mean, I loathe them... for obvious reasons... BUT, every now and then something is relative in some way shape or form... This one is emotionally.
     
  25. No doubt it's cool to watch, but these guys should have it regulated somehow before they run out in front of traffic, damage someone elses property, or run some kid over.

    Im with you thats some cool shit but before someone gets hurt or killed. Take note of the 2 incidents just last weekend. Sure they had engines but speed kills .. Any speed.. Rules and organizied racing is needed..

    There are alot of decaffeinated brands on the market that taste just as good.
     
  28. We got a nice Soap Box Derby track here in Salem. It's free and open to the public year round (when the Derby ain't on). Wide enough you could "cone" a curvy course on it. Run 'em 3-4 at a time. CRAP...like I need something else to build! My truck's never gonna get on the road.
