Greenpower car build week 7

This week we worked on preparing the mounts for the rear axle. We bolted on the parts that will allow us to fix the rear wheels to the chassis.

We started to assemble the toothed drive pulley that will send power to the rear wheels. It uses a rubber toothed drive belt to transfer the rotation of the motor to power the wheels.

We also assembled the car seat from various parts. We needed 34 allen bolts and nuts together with 68 small washers. It was a very fiddly job as you can see.

We are making sure we are recording our progress every week.
