Battery Buggy Parts

Postby parth » January 5th, 2019, 9:38 am

Hi,

I am in 6th grade and participating for my first science Olympiad in Virginia. I am in desperate need of help.I am not able to understand the parts I should order. Sorry, I am new to this :(

I looked at the Polou website but it has many different 12v motors. Can you please guide me in selecting the motor, compatible gear and threaded axle I should order. I spend a lot of time on internet looking.

Thank your for your help. I am so interested in participating in this event.

Thank you!

So I have this random capacitor lying around... would it be of any help in final revisions to my battery buggy? The capacitor is a 1000 MFD gray cylinder with a wire coming out of each end.

Are rail systems - like the Actobotics X-Rail (https://www.servocity.com/x-rail) - suitable for Battery Buggy? Are there any better aluminum frame alternatives?

I used aluminum angle bars. I suppose the x-rail would work too.

Thin. Sorry, at this point in the season, I'm not willing to share certain information.
