    Have you considered a petrol engine ?

    Then again if you dont have the money for 2500 mA batteries i dont think your really going to be making a big impact with much else even in the world of DIY solar panels and neuclear fusion.

    Thats why i want to! And to get more practice time. But i dont think i have the money for the 2500mA battery so i want to go with making my own solar panels. then i can put them where ever on the body i need them and they will work!

    Just please dont let this die! i really want to make myself usefull
    Unless there are some serious hardcore folks out there, I think you just killed it.

    Good luck.
    My opinion is my own.

    i dont actually know how much they are but i want to keep going for hours and hours instead of i have to charge my battery.
    if i can get a solar panel that will charge or run my car. either way i want to put a little fan inside to keep my motor from overheating.

    lost 3 motors already from overheating...

    well i think this will work.
    i just need a motor now...
    dang. lol

    any ideas on how i will get this to work? (but it will work)

    What if you had two motors: One of them running the wheels, and the other one helping power the first motor? That way, they both use only half the power as usual, extending your battery life 2x!

    I really like the idea of grinding up solar cells into a paste and spreading that over your car so you can get it into all the nooks and crannies. Hats off.

    Special olympics? I stand corrected. This kid is a genius and you're all being played like a cheap fiddle. Now, for the guilt to set in and he's got you right where he wants you.

    Well done!
