Ok, in my high school physics class I have to build a car powered only by a standard mousetrap. To get an A on the project it must go at least 10 meters. We must build everything from scratch, meaning we can't buy a mousetrap-car kit and build from there.
I was wondering if anyone on here has ever had to build or construct something similar to this, and if anyone knows of any good websites or 'insider' tips that would help me out, especially when it comes to building the axles and connecting them to the body. I have heard CDs with some type of rubber band around the outside work well for the wheels.
Also, what is the best way to build the body, and what type of wood would work best for it?
Any tip or little bit of info is welcome. Thanks!
