An MIT student's adventures through engineering and beyond.

In which your protagonist characterizes a horrifically underpowered motor for use in an EV.
In which your intrepid engineer-to-be explains the impossiblity of getting parts for a go-kart cut on an abrasive waterjet machine.
Where two young, intrepid engineers attempt to electrify two bicycles for under $200 using an odd motor without any magnets.
So last time I covered the basic drivetrain design. Now I'll get to the CAD design of the go-kart itself.
Where your intrepid engineer to be attempts to make an electric gokart that goes 35 mph with 80/20 aluminum extrusion.
And, unfortunately, like any other first post, this will be weird and awkward, so i'll just cut to the chase.
