Interesting Cubmobile Design

Post by Nitro Dan » Thu Jul 12, 2007 1:07 pm

Here's a link to a Cubmobile design done from mostly plywood instead of two-by-four's:

Check out their breaking system as well (link at bottom of page). Very unique.

I had found that site a year ago.

It was neat to see something different and alot of info about the built on the web site.

I think though, they should follow the Cub Scout Guide book plans and rules.

I believe they will have rule updates for the Cubmobile in the 2007 Guide book.

I'm hoping they will have better information in the new book.

I don't think that I have, thanks for the link.

I took a look, pretty nice Cubmobile.

I think the only thing I dont care for it the safety sides for the seat and floor safety foot board is missing.



But it does look like they had a nice event, alot of work putting those tires on the sides. Which they had something for the middle for a divider.

But maybe they just had single lane runs.


I still would like to see the same design used for the stock class. that way at some point there can be district races from the local winners within the districts.

I have seen a few open class ones out there that are really neat. nice wood body of them, reminded me of soap box derby.

I like the foot brace, Just cant tell by the picture if there was a piece to keep the foot from slipping off.

Did some digging around and located a PDF file that contains a more detailed design of their cubmobile. It has some better views and diagrams of the foot brace. Here's the link to it:
