Race Day

Race Day: So on Wednesday March 11, 2009 we had our race day. My car suprisingly travelled 7.9 metres. It was on the first trial. I was suprised because when I tested it out at school it only barely moved approximately 3 mtrs so when at race day the car travellled 7.9 mtrs I was ready to jump up and down and celebrate but I couldn't. But overall i was very pleased with my car and other cars that I saw. OUr class had some really fast cars and some record breaking cars of 16 mtrs. So overall This was a succesful project for many.

Design #2





So as you can see it's once again back to the Designing stage. With just 3 more weeks to go Lightning balloons Car.Inc is still designing. We had one test run but sadly the car didn't even move so epic failure. So i have deisnged this hoping it will work. So be patient and the trial runs will be posted.

Other than the post that I have given you guys before this these are the other two different prototypes I came across when lookng for designs. But I have added my own touch to them so hopefully I will be chosing one of these three designs. I have chosen all my designs to be triangle shaped in the front because that will help the air to flow through rather than block the airwhich will require more energy from the veichle which will in the end slow it down .
