RedBull Soapbox Race 2004

Construction underway

After a weekend of work on our soapbox racer is taking shape nicely. We have the two bike frames secured together with steel, added the seat and we even have brakes. Steering was sorted on Monday night and we took her for the first test run.

In testing up and down the street, Annette is already nice and fast with responsive (perhaps too responsive) steering. Dan on his first test drive managed to put her on two wheels and nearly flipped it but managed to hold on. The rest of the team did better but all agreed that the BMX front wheels were too unstable. A moment later and we had slick mountainbike wheels on the front and everything was much more balanced....
