Building a CO2 Race Car
CO2 Car Design Engineering Technology. In this unit you will be challenged to design, build, and race your own CO2 powered dragster. The car you will build is a fully functional, miniature, rocket-powered dragster. You won’t believe how fast these little cars will go!!!!File Size: KB. Apr 16, · Use Autodesk® Fusion ™ to design and test as many factors as possible, improving your chances for success. To build on the CO2 car project, you work as team in your shop to design and create a manual fourth-axis fixture that indexes every 90 degrees, allowing you to cut and machine all four sides of your car if necessary.
This curriculum will not be monitored after June 30, You can continue to download these educational materials until that time. Looking for the latest curriculum we have to offer?

To create my design, I used CorelDraw x3. I drew my design with different lines, making sure to keep it symmetrical. I then laser printed my design on the wood, I used a saw to cut it out. Freehand drawing is also fine. Then I drilled holes for where my axels and CO2 cartridge would be. Also above, I put in small pieces of straw to block the wood and axel from hitting each other. Putting graphite in the straw is also helpful to make the wheels turn smoothly.
Graphite is not necessary for your car. Put axels inside of cut straw. You will need to cut the axels down so they are slightly sticking out of the car. Front axel is an example of the axel being too long, back axel is correct size. Add the larger wheels to the back, and the smaller wheels to the front. The axel will go inside of the hole in the wheel.
Add your CO2 cartridge into the hole at the back of your car. Make sure the hole is not punctured in any way, or the cartridge will explode. Lastly, add your fish hooks. These are encouraged, but necessary, for your car. If you are running a race in a track that has a string for the car to follow, these are perfect for staying on the string. If you have any questions about this project, feel free to ask me. Also, if you have a good project that you are working on, I would love to see it.
