The future is closing in, small projects like this are what helps our engineers develop full scale versions. It's completely ecofriendly, zero emission & battery free! The car's top speed is extremely fast, although it lacks torque which result to a slow starting acceleration.
|This thing runs an average of 14kph. Granzeier made an equation below to get the car's speed. 20kph is achievable but requires a lot of sunlight. Not bad for a car powered by sunlight!|
The video on the left shows 1/3 is the car's max speed potential. It was taken during night and only had a 30w fluorescent lamp as its light source. You can watch the car's max potential speed in the video below.
For the plan to succeed I need to have a number of viewers from YouTube, Facebook & Instructables. Thank you for your cooperation!
I'm starting a Weekend Project channel:
Please support my new FB page :D There are more interesting stuff to come!
Watch This Insane Video! See How Fast It Really Goes :D
You wouldn't believe this :)) Not bad for a car powered by sunlight :DD
