Below all our cars
Below daughters car. She took 1st. place in sibling division and was 5th. fastest out of 61 cars.
Below my 9 years old sons car. He wanted it the way it is. Was not sure how it would race being so skinny. We do not have a center rail on our track of course. He took home the Most creative design award.
Below may 11 years old sons car. He has taken to magic this year. He did not seem to be into the derby that much but was really into creating his design.
Below my wife's design. She had this idea for a whole year now. She lost the Best non scout design award by 4 votes.
And finally my car. I defended my title for Best non scout design.I had to custom make my axles and car needed to be let go on side of start gate because the holes for the start gate pins would cause it to fall over. It did make it once down the track. So I also took home the brake award for slowest adult hence the last place medal also. Now I will have to go for a three peat next year.
Thanks for viewing.
The sword car remind me of my sword of fire car

Did you use just two wheels for your car? or did you place the front and back wheels next to each other to make a wider base and use all 4 still.
