Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A gravity racer is a motorless vehicle capable of holding a driver built for the purpose of racing or recreation. They are propelled by gravity and can achieve speeds upwards of 100 km/h. Originally, soapbox cars were built from wooden soap crates and rollerskate wheels, but have grown more sophisticated over time, with materials like aluminum, fiberglass and even CFRP being utilized. In the United Kingdom a soapbox car is called a buggy, trolley, cart. It is also sometimes called a go-cart, although that now more usually refers to a similar vehicle with a motor, spelt "go kart." In Scotland and northern England it can also be called a bogie, cartie/cairtie or guider.show more
