wheel Big


Wheel Big was built to race in the 2012 Portland Adult Soapbox Derby. The hubless rear wheel measured over 7′ in diameter. Plywood degradation shortened our race day, but it was an extremely fun concept car to roll/ test. With a steel race added to the wear surface of the rim this would be a street worthy vehicle.

Our team won the Best in Engineering prize from the soapbox jury. The race day photos were taken by Mitchell Snyder, who has a terrific photography portfolio that is well worth visiting. Thanks Mitch!
