Ramp Climbing 1


ramp climber 1 


 This is our ramp climbing car. We started off with building for torque but soon realized that, Torque is not the only thing,  we needed weight distribution as well as ability to keep the driving wheels on the surface so that the power can be transfered to the surface. This is were we used a roll of ducktape :)

This was a good exercise in reduction gearing and buiding simple gear trains.

We were able to get to 35 degree inclined plane

    Great job using–and explaining–compound gears and the torque/speed trade-off! Your video will be useful for other MINDSTORMers trying to build ramp-climbing cars!
