Speed

  • I anticipate my trolley will go up to 50 km per hour

Braking

  • It would take about 7 seconds to stop

Strengths

  • I have tried to make the trolley out of light materials so it can go faster
  • The steeering bar makes it easier to turn than a steering wheel

Weaknesses

  • The friction brake may not stop as quick as I thought

Things I will need help with

  • I will need help making the whole trolley

Why my design should win

  • My design should win because it will look great, race well and is the best design ever

What inspired my design

  • My awesome imagination
