Model Solar Cars
These cars are intended to be designed and constructed by the students consequently I will not be providing detailed plans. I will however point you towards the extensive data available to guide you. Remember there are committee members and other Schools who are always willing to assist, as a first port of call go to Contact and email the technical help.
To begin with read the regulations then look at some photographs of previous cars and I strongly suggest some video also. With this background then read the Model Solar Car Design Overview. The last part of this document contains detailed information on a very simple car manufactured from off the shelf components with only basic hand tools on a table top. This car in fact won the Victorian competition that year. Do note that this car would need the addition of a transverse plate of 200 sq cm to conform to the current regulations.
The Buying guide lists suppliers of the more specialised and harder to locate components and material.
