June 12th, 2006

I haven't been able to post in a while, but I have been continuing work. School's out for summer next Wednesday, so that will free up a lot of time. Today I achieved what I have been working towards for a couple weeks. I've built the left side of the front end of the electric car out of wood. It has double a-arm suspension, steering, and is driven by the 12V motor via the top-secret transmission and a u-joint driveshaft. I rebuilt a wagon to use as a rolling platform and rested the car's front end against it, as you can see in the picture on the progress page at http://www.craterfish.org/teamprodigies. I hooked up a battery and a motor controller circuit, and the motor was able to drive the platform.
