The Power Racing Series builds are coming along well. With only a month left until Laker Faire, there is still a lot left though. If you’re interested in helping out please come to one or more of our Wednesday night builds.
The #30 “Big Red Jeep”
The first car we started working on was the Jeep. Right now we have the frame, rear end and steering all worked out. Next on our list is brakes and linking up the motor to the driveshaft.
The “John Deere”
The other vehicle, is the John Deere tractor. Eric has taken the reigns and is building a compact machine. We’re planning on using an Arduino based motor controller. We had a pretty productive work day last week.
Hopefully by the end of next week, both cars will be rolling and have motors connected. Once we get them moving to a point where we can start “driving” we’ll take a video and post it here for all to enjoy!
