This soapbox racer was completed in 2016 after around 350 hours of designing and building. Everything on he racer apart from the wheels and steering wheel has been fabricated by hand. A fun and challenging project that was part of my A-level design course: which received full marks.
The main chassis of the racer is made from 25mm x 25mm square section mild steel bar. This makes it light and strong. The racer was build specifically for myself and being 6ft 6 inches and nearly 90kg the chassis is build to withstand a good amount of stress.
Feel free to ask any questions and in-depth documentation about all of the racers production (A 14 page document) with notes and photos will be up for purchase within the coming month.
