Feast your eyes upon the beast of all solar cars! A small scale dragster, runs 14-20kph!. A project great for beginners! I made this when I was 6 y/o, this guide is kinda* a remake of my original project. It only took me $4 to one. It runs with two 5v ultra fast 2400rpm efficiency motors, recycled from old "DVD Drives". This small scale experiment would become real lifesized vehicles in the future.
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.
For the plan to succeed I need to have a number of viewers from YouTube, Facebook & Instructables. Thank you for your cooperation!
|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.
