4x4 Electric Toy Car

This was a simple exercise in Mechanical Engineering using Erector sets.

Being an Electrical Engineer does not limit me to circuits. I enjoy building things with my hands, and will always take on a challenge in Mechanical Engineering...

 I had an idea one day out of the blue to create a 4x4 car out of my old Erector set. After a few rebuilds I ended up with a sturdy 4-wheel drive electric vehicle.

This vehicle practices basic physics and applied mechanics through the use of opposing forces via triangular structures and cross supports.

Considerable gearing has been applied to produce the necessary torque and 4x4 action as seen in the photos.
