Our gokart starts off very strong. It doesn't require any push or momentum.
This was our final test. We angled the gokart so it could go as far as possible without hitting any walls. It reached the end.
Our axil wasn't completely straight during the process of testing, therefore the gokart drove at an angle instead of straight. We had to curve the gokart from the start point so it could reach the maximum drive length.
We had a problem with the teamwork between the driver and the pusher...
This shot was the best thing that happened that day.
Our kart couldn't steer with certain amounts of speed and the entire steering process was stiff and hard to control, especially at high speeds.
The first test did not work very well. Our brake wasn't alined and wasn't tight enough to have friction to stop the wheel.
On the other hand, our gokart is designed to brake on command. It is wifi controlled so we just command a kill switch to the program and it stops instantly.
The brake never really alined with the axil so it was always out of place. The brake also need a ton of force to work efficiently.
In conclusion, our Gokart was out of this league but it was a fun project.
