Jeep with trailer build

Post by davet » Sun Oct 21, 2018 12:29 am

We had our 2nd Annual pinewood derby event at church today. I put on 2 workshops and offered a Builder Class where the cars are built entirely at church with church supplied materials. These cars stay at church until the race. We also had Open Class where cars could be built with any materials anywhere but had to adhere to NSC rules.

Here is what I built this year:

That's pretty cool! It looks like the "trailer" is rigidly attached to the "jeep", making it a 6-wheel derby car rather than a 4-wheel derby car with a trailer. Is that correct?

The Jeep frame and trailer are all one piece. 1/4” thick hollowed out block.

Thanks. Not anywhere’s close to your works of art. I think I need more tools. Yeah, yeah more tools would be good.

Are you kidding me davet .. Your 's is the work of art here!

And as much as I hate to say it , I have yet to build a derby car with working lights that lasted.
However I have tried to do one of my guitar design's some time back by using the working's out of a musical hallmark card with fiber optics lights.
To play music and light up the strings.. it worked and looked cool in the dark .. However the music and lights did not play for very long while working .
Think that topic where i was working on this can be found here:
