    so i wanted like would glue or what would keep them together.

    how many broken solar cells would work to get about 150mA going into the motor constintly i guess...

    i mean the car on a mod runs for about 8mins on a 1500ma
    so in a min it has to have 150mA then to go that speed ok its like 173 or something

    but how would i tell the mA

    also i was thinking i might get a brushless motor and for that it needs 7.2 volts but can go to 12 so i think i want at least 8volts going to the motor with the past also

    i mean what if you put it on tin foil and just drew what you needed on the tin foil and put it inside the lines?

    but i dont think i can use the epoxy thing though.
    so what would i put in it that i should have at home?
    If you put it on the foil before you bake, it will bond to the foil. Then you have a rigid mass that you cant get onto the car. Foil is too flexible and you need this precise. That is why you need to bake it directly to the body.

    Epoxy is a 2 part glue. Dries hard. You can find it at Home Depot. Use some scrap wood or wax paper or something that you can throw away to mix the 2 parts (equally) and the solars. Then spread over the body and try to get it as even as you can (for weight distribution). Then bake. Pretty easy.

    You can by epoxy online if you dont have a way of getting any locally.

    And I already posted about how to tell the volts. A multimeter or stick to your tongue. Since it can take between 7 and 12 volts, then you want something with a little more shock than a 9v this time instead of less.

    I did tell him to watch it closely. Also it would just be the shell ontop, so if it does go up in a firey blaze, less weight on the car == longer runtime.

    Good that we'll be seeing you in the underworld!


    But yeah +1 for pics.

    I actually suggest starting a worklog once you get going: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/worklogs/

    Take pictures as you go
