|front frames not stable|
We were arguing about where we should put our knees on the kart. Should it be on the intersection between the front horizontal frame and the vertical frame? Or back off a little bit and avoid that intersection? It turns out that it doesn't really matter. So we are avoiding that part cause that way is more comfortable for the driver. We tried to sit on the kart the other night, and the front frame just kind of sinked a bit... It turns out that we didn't fasten the joints enough. And it's probably because of the wood, and there is no aluminum plate at the top to squeeze the whole structure together.
We put on everything, newly adjusted front wheel s, back wheel, motor, batteries and controllers.
Looks pretty good, now all we need is the steering wheel and the seating !!!!
Friday! We did the steering wheel and the test turns out to be pretty good. It's easy to turn but not that easy. And we also found the bolts and nuts to secure the controller to the battery deck, a way to secure the brake. I think we got the sensor mount too....A little problem was that the steering rod appeared to be a little bit shaky, it turns out that we missed one shaft collar, so we are moving three holes a little bit forward to avoid the shaft collar from hitting the aluminum frame.
All we are left is the seating, which is quite tricky to secure. We bent some L brackets and the holes are very tricky to drill. which took us quite a long time. SHOULD TRY FINGER JOINTS NEXT TIME!!!
