Go-Kart Project Ryan kramer

Problem Statement- We have to design, build and test a drill powered go-kart. We have two marking periods to complete this project. The materials provided are a 18v drill, 1 sheet of plywood, miscellaneous hardware, and wood glue. We also have a $25 budget to buy additional materials.

This is an example of how we would set up the drill to spin the wheel.
