Problem Statement- Our task is to Design, build, and test a go-kart powered by a drill. We will also be competing our karts in 3 different courses. These courses will include drag strip (acceleration/top speed), road course (handling/control), and super mileage (endurance/efficiency).
We will be working on our go-kart from now until graduation.
We are given a $25 budget for extra materials that we can order.
We are provided with certain materials. These materials include:
- 18V Drill (must be able to attach and detach quickly)
- 1 sheet of 3/4" plywood
- Miscellaneous hardware
- Wood Glue
We also may provide outside materials. These materials include:
- Wheels (required)
- Chain (optional)
- Gears (optional)
