Displaying image001.pngLast week you formed teams.  The next two weeks will help you to determine if it's a good fit.

First, I need you to finalize your personal (not team, an individual thing!) kart blog.  I don't care which tech you use to do this.  This is your Performance Final, so here is that rubric.  Last week we were together, I gave you until Dec. 3/4.  That still stands, so balance your time well.  

In addition, you should design a full kart frame, and determine motors, wheels, gears.  The motor used on the truck kart is http://www.monsterscooterparts.com/24vo500wamow1.html

It's a common motor for these karts.  We use a 60 inch sprocket on the wheel, but keep in mind that we are using 10-inch wheels which are pretty big.  This will be a TEST GRADE for your group by 12/9 or 12/10, whenever you have my class.  Your team NEEDS to have these core decisions before we go away!

Remember to look back at your old assignments, like Week of Sept. 8 for gears, ratios

Then, before break, we will outline a budget for you to bring home over break, so you can have good fundraising discussions.  We're getting close!!!
