1Hey Coach,
Where can I buy a starter kit to build a soap box car?

Hey sam

The only place for you to buy a soap box starter kit is directly from the All-American Soap Box Derby. This is the organization that runs all soap box races in the United States. A basic soap box car kit costs around $300 US - but that doesn't include a set of wheels, which costs another $80.00.

If you're a first-time builder, it's a good idea to buy a couple of extra brake cables. You may have to change the position of the brake pedal one or more times to properly fit your body to the race car. If you want to change position of the pedal, after you've cut your cable to length, then you could be scrambling to get another cable. Stay on the safe side and order a couple of spare cables with your kit (They're cheap and brakes are obviously very important.) It's also a good idea to order extra wheel washers and brake pads - since you'd hate to be forced out of a race because you ran out of car parts.

You can order your starter kit, and extra parts, by phone, fax or snail mail. For AASBD contact info and for more information on starter kits, click here.

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.

    My opinion is that gymnastics is a bit harder than but cheer but is still a lot of fun. It takes strength, flexibility, courage and determination.
