Since the beginning of school year this year ,my engineering class has been designing a Fuel efficient cart for a race which is this monday down at indianapolis speedway. We just finished the cart last week and it is a beauty considering some juniors/seniors built it themselves..the teacher helped a little bit
The paint job was done by a local corvette shop for FREE. The only stipulation was that we had to put 2 of his logos on our cart..which doens't really matter b/c those logos are tight with the corvette imblum and all. I was on the news last week for this cart cuz our local Fox 28 came out to see it and they talked to us about it. anyways..here'* some pics.
Here'* a nice side shot
Here i let my awesome shooting abilities come into play
The race consists of around 100 schools all wanting the best gas mileage. The concept of our car was to slice through the wind with a tear drop shape. The body is made of kevlar ($$$) and some carbon fibre. And there is a Briggs & Stratton 3.5HP Motor in there , hehe. Were hoping to get around 750MPG and win the race on monday. Wish us luck.
