Go Kart Project Jonathan Kranz

Problem statement- We have to build a go-kart using a drill as an engine, screws and plywood provided by our instructor. we have have $25 limit to purchase any additional materials we can't obtain ourselves. This project will be constructed over 2 marking periods. The final project will be subjected to an obstacle course to test speed and mobility.

This is our idea, to power a two wheeled go kart with two drills because we have a few larger people in our group.
This is our skeleton plan without the drills mounted, our first step is to build this when we get our materials.

This is the top platform that connects to our frame. It was transformed into a Vcarve file so it can be cut.
This is the frame of our go-kart which is constructed out of 2x4 pieces of lumber.
This is the ideal wheel for design, it has 20 inch diameter.
This is the break design.
This is the completed design on www.onshape.com
This the assembly of our frame and the attachment of the chair.
The image on the left hand side shows our group attaching the one wheel. The middle image depicts the single rear swivel wheel. The image on the right hand side shows all three wheels mounted, including the start of the break system.
The image on the left hand side shows us attaching the brake axles. the image on the right hand side shows our pedals, which allow us to stop each tire individually. this allows us to turn our go kart like tank.

How our Go-kart turns: In order to turn left we must push the right pedal and continue to drive the left side, and viceversa to turn right.
