To introduce all racers this is the page. Racers and their Carts.

I'll try to make my instructions easy to scan, but also as specific as possible. Where appropriate, I'll include pictures that illustrate the steps. Here's an example of format I might use for an instruction page:

How to Change a Tire

Step 1: Pry off the wheel cover with the wrench and loosen the wheel nuts.

Jack of a car; Size=240 pixels wide

Step 2: Put the jack under the car.

Step 3: Use the wrench to jack the car until the wheel is about three inches off the ground.

Step 4: Remove the nuts, mount the spare, and thread the nuts back on by hand.

Step 5: Lower the car, remove the jack, and then use the wrench to fully tighten the wheel nuts.

Tools and Materials

In this area I'll include a list of all the material necessary to perform the tasks I'm describing on this page.

Terminology

In this area I'll define any specialized vocabulary that it's helpful to know in order to perform the tasks described on this page.

***!!! WARNING !!!***
SOAP BOX RACING IS INHERENTLY DANGEROUS
AND MAY RESULT IN BODILY INJURY OR DEATH.
DO NOT ENTER UNLESS YOU UNDERSTAND THAT.
Like: downhill cycling, mountain biking, skiing, skateboarding, snowboarding, bmx, rollerblading, and other extreme and non-extreme activities. Soap box racing is dangerous, cars can reach upward of 50+ m.p.h.. Soapbox events are held on public roads and variable conditions always exist. The fact that your soapbox car will have, steering, brakes, and maybe a roll cage and seat belts should not imply that this activity is safe in anyway. Soapbox karts should obey all traffic rules to the same effect as a bicyclist, skateboarder, wheelchair or any other NON-motorized activity that may occupy the roadway.
