    Wow, is this for real or what?

    How did I ever miss this gem of a thread. I read the first few and the last few and a couple in between. I think might have to go read this one from the beginning. I just have a few questions for those regular posters here, is it worth my time or what?

    seriously... go to this website to find your IQ: http://www.addictinggames.com/theimpossiblequiz.html
    it is flash, so it may take awhile to load.

    after that plug the numbers in!

I have full confidence in your abilities to handle these problems, as you have proven beyond a shadow of reasonable doubt that you are a smart kid.
    Seriously your a smart kid... you got this! Not very many other children would even attempt to defy laws of physics, laws of conservation of energy, Kinetics, other dynamics, and other laws of something called common sense.


    by the way, i love your drafting, i think that you will make an excellent draftsman someday.

    I really admire your persistence here, but you have to start somewhere and if your budget is $61 here is my honest opinion if you want to make a cart and have it propel you. I know for a fact it works since I picked up something along these lines when I was 10 years old for $25

    Absolutely. This is the best thread ever started on this forum.

    I wanted it to be solar i'm getting sick of asking my parents to go get fule or something...

    So if i make it solar with the insolated panels and motor..

    then i can basically leave it out in the day time and night time.

    Then when i get good enough with it i will make head lights and so on and so on...

    But i want it to be an electric motor with solar to help recharge it some

    Please notice how small this thing is (from my university) The frame is made of aluminum (lightweight), it is primarily made of Styrofoam (very light), has no air conditioning of any sort (lighter, and hotter), carries only one person(lighter), has virtually no wind resistance (thin), only has 3 tires (less ground friction), and if you can see that lump on the top you are looking at the windshield.
    **Now point of previous paragraph...
    A team of Engineering Students get together and during the course of 1 year to build this. They make it as light as possible, fast as possible and yet some of the brightest minds can only produce a vehicle with limited capabilities. Look at the thing it is covered in some of the most efficient solar panels in the world. Now how is it that you were going to make a large refrigerator box with training wheels into a fast solar Machine?
