How to: Build a Soapbox Derby Car

Want to build a soapbox derby car but don’t know where to start? Check out our derby page for official rules and specifications for our race (hint: they’re safety-based and not nearly as rigid as sanctioned races) as well as links to helpful plans and hints. We run two divisions — one for “kit” cars and one for homemade versions. As long as cars meet the safety requirements, let your creativity flow on materials and design!
