Go-Kart Challenge by Rashid Desrosiers

Problem Statement - My team and I will build a Go-Kart that will be powered by a handheld drill. We will be tested and matched up against the other teams' Go-Karts on three different courses. The first course, the drag strip, will be testing our kart's acceleration/top speed capabilities. The second course, the road, will be testing our handling/control, and super mileage will test our endurance/efficiency. Our group's constraints are that our budget is $25, and we can only use one 4x8 sheet of wood. The materials that we will be using for the Go-Kart is wood, PVC pipes, bicycle wheels, and a frisbee.
