Our goal is to come up with a design for the drill powered G-Kart we need to make to successfully accomplish three different courses: Acceleration, handling/control, and endurance). We already have an idea on the materials we want to use. Going to need hard wood for better support when sitting on Go-Kart, four wheels with two out of the four being different in sizes (Large/small), and possibly a bike chain for our drill bit. Total budget is limited to $25 for anything extra we may need such as wheels. The wheels that I was looking at cost $22.59. We plan on using the wood we have here in school especially hard wood for stronger support.
What I've come up with based upon research (Sketches/pictures)
Powered drill for acceleration (attached to back wheels)
Representation of how are Go Kart will turn (string attached to front wheels)
representation of what a braking system looks like (research)

Me and my group partner, Emily, combined what we came up with for a design and came to this design shown above. We used her overall frame and my turning system.
Here is our fully cut out frame with Shopbot. We shrunk the cut out back piece.
