Elastic Powered Car

.

Elastic powered car

.

This was a university project completed during my first year of studies. I was required to design and fabricate an elastic powered car which was to travel as far as possible. My design consisted of a vacuum formed shell encasing the mechanical working parts.

The car utilised three elastic bands which accelerated the car (four wheel drive), once the elastics have supplied all the power possible, the driving mechanism was released and the car was able to freewheel to a stop. My car was able to travel a total distance of roughly 15 meters.
