First Car

So for my first car I have chosen to use the canex pieces for this car, because it's light weight and is very sturdy. My car is very slim in width but has a larger base to stabilize the balloon. The canex make the body which then a piece of cardboard I cut out has been put over top of and a slit cut for each wheel. The balloon I have chosen is quite large, but I am still working on a mechanism of how to control the air flow.

Starting My Car

I'm in the midst off deciding of what to make my car car out of. On one hand I have a cardboard like material with wheels as suck, which are light wait and will be the car faster. I'm leaning more towards canex though because they are light weight but still structurally sound. My idea for this car is to have a good structurally base for the balloon to sit on and medium wheel size for minimal friction, more rotations and to keep it light weight. Post of start of car to come soon.
