Go Kart Pearce Bragaw

Problem Statement: Our goal is to create a working Go Kart that can be powered by an 18Volt drill. We need to be able to turn, and complete various tests to see how the Kart functions. The handling, speed and endurance is tested. We have only $25 and one 4ft by 8ft sheet of plywood.
