Re: High School Build Project III

too bad those wheels dont fit, they look killer on there. Are you going to stick with that style or somthing different?

and i sent the weatherstrip out a week or so ago, hope it helps!

Thats awesome, We didn't do anything close to this in high school auto tech. Our biggest task was tearing down and re assembling a lawn mower.... Keep up the good work!

Re: High School Build Project III

We are going to put off finishing the truck until next school year
We are in a solar powered go cart competition with 17 other schools in upper east TN. The program is through a grant. Each school is given a stripped down go cart, racing seat, safety harness, 24 volt motor, and an allowance to spend on components to finish it.
When finished, we take it to Bristol Motor Speedway in May to compete in a 1/4 drag race and a 8 mile endurance race with 4 students doing all of the racing
This should be interesting, fun, and challenging for all of us
If anyone has any insight on anything- please help us out
Here is where we are at today

Re: High School Build Project III

Awesome!!! I'm not much help in the way of suggestions at this point, but looking forward to see this come together!

What are the rules as to what you can and cannot do to the go cart for the race (other than no gas-powered motor lol)?

We got pick our solar panel
No suspension or frame modification but can weld or bolt on bracket

Re: High School Build Project III

Can the stock tires be worn out? (perhaps a bit prematurely?) I'm thinkin' you want to reduce rolling resistance as much as possible by eliminating the aggressive tread.

Make sure all of the bearings are really smooth......again, to reduce rolling resistance as much as possible.

Think light!

I'm not sure if aero will come into play too much, but I'd be tempted to explore a really lightweight body or fairings to take as much drag out of the equation as possible as well.

That's all I have off the top of my head..........it sounds like a fun project!
