well i have been seeing the signs around the area. our fall festival is next saturday. ya know small towns flee markets, kid games food, and stuff. good excuse to have a beer,lol. well the thing that had me thinking was a sign. SOAP BOX DERBY! well i just so happened to have some experience in building these. they don't call waynesville "the ville on the hill" for nothing. we have 3 roads going out of town that are steep hills going down out of town. when i was in my younger teens we used to build em day after day. sure some of ya did too. well in all the experiments we did with wheels was exausting. they would bend axles bolts come out of the wood. the wood would split at the axle. finally the ultimate in speed and reliability came to mind. 4 sets of skate board wheels. all ya got to do is screw each set on the underside of the 2x4 and its mobil and fast. so anyhow i found out that several others in town were building them and i decided last week to build my 6 year old son one. well today we almost got her done. i had a gallon of paint left over form our bedroom and its very close to the gray of a catfish lmao. so i built it to look loke a top fuel dragster and were painting it tomorrow. even gonna paint a catfish on the top. hope the staff dont mind i thought of putting B.O.C. dragster on it. no harm no foul im sure cause its just for the kids. any hoot ill post some pics tomorrow. the thind looks pretty cool. with some graphite lube in the bearrings it should fly.
