CHEAP POWER L*yva Uvitt Cars Coast All The Way Gravity is the only propelling force in the Soap Box Derby racing racing car. The cars are designed to coast freely from the starting ramp past the finish line. No kind of a boost or push is permitted to get them started. Although the racers seem to start slowly, they soon achieve surprising speed. The starting ramp and track offer sufficient grade so that well-built cars can attain speeds of more than 25 mph. In fact, they will average close to that speed over the 975- foot course, hitting peaks of around 30 mph in the final stretch. To start a heat, the cars are placed on the ramp 1 with their noses resting against metal barriers barriers which hold them securely in place. One lever drops all three barriers simultaneously and the cars begin their downhill roll from a standing start. Since the cars have no motors, spectators frequently ask what makes one faster than another. The answer lies in the design of the car and the painstaking workmanship workmanship of which many boys are capable. There are many factors which affect the speed of Soap Box racers. Perfect alignment of the wheels to that the car coasts straight Is perhaps the most important. important. Weight Is important and to is the even distribution of the weight so that each wheel c a r r i e s . a n equal burden. Vibration and friction friction slow the racer. The tight, strongly built car is usually faster. A good steering system is vital. It gives a boy the control needed needed to hold a itraight course, which is the' shortest distance to the finish line. Streamlining adds «pe«d by reducing air r*««tanc«, Webster WritfU
