Maker Faire is next week. The pressure is on. We had an afternoon to late night build session, including a pizza and ice cream break.
The fantastic brake mechanism, designed by James, is complete. Including an authentic "brake shoe". This brake is so strong, even 2.5 man-power cannot push the car when the brake is engaged. The steering has been slightly re-engineered to reduce friction and increase stability in the ball bearings. The electronics are mounted, the dog bark playback circuit still works.
Unfortunately one small detail has a set back, and our engine does not start any more... We'll fix that...
Make sure to visit us at Maker Faire in the outside Young Makers area, on the "West Lot", Sunday May 22nd from 10am till 2pm.
