New power racing series car from the ground up. Double-alternator split-axle torque vectoring track dominator.
Mechanical design of the kart. everything rides on them.
Leave room to fit a motor for autonomous steering.
Use similar measurements from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbReLNi2JP4.
Double wishbone design if we have time.
2 3/4"pillow block bearings for each half shaft.
Each half shaft is 3/4" with 3/16" keyway, uses the tires we already have.
Front brakes are beefier than the rear bike disk brakes.
4 wheel braking, throttle drops to zero when the brake is pressed.
Make the kart go. Battery, controller, motors
- Charged: 4.2*13=54.6
- Storage: 3.7*13=48.1
- Low: 3.4*13=44.2
Put some voltage in the solar controller, make it say 01, hit ok to charge.
Using alternators. To make alternator go, need field current. Small connector, apply 2-3V, 5A
Vedder VESC ESC
- BLDC: some control scheme
- FOC: Field oriented control: Needs encoder, then would work.
- AS5047 is one that VESC has built in support for
* Required Bodge: Tie MOSI or whatever the controller to sensor to gnd or 3v3
Make sure we have lights see at night. also make sure the kart does not burn down. More creative systems including a "steering wheel" display to display information and change settings.
The moxie maker. Most of the competition points will come from this,
