Step 1: Take the CD / Floppy Disk Drive
First you need to unscrew the old floppy
Then take the stepper motor and the laser bulb tray which is attached to the stepper motor’s axis.
Step 2: Things You Need to Build the Steering Frame
Step 3: Cut Off the Unwanted Area With a Saw Blade
Step 4: First Take the 2 Long Strips and the Rectangular Strips
! Remember ! Don’t fix these tight. Make
it loose so that it can move easily
Step 5: Fix the Wheels to “L” Shape Parts, Allowing Them to Rotate Smoothly
Fix the wheels to “L” shape parts,
allowing them to rotate smoothly
Step 6: Finalize the Structure
Fix the wheels to the green frame tightly, Don’t make it loose
The blue colour strip connects to the stepper motor horizontally.
It moves with the stepper motor, so that the wheels will also turn left and right.
The red colour strip connects to the vehicle tight.
