I am building a truck from trash as materials. I have one small motor and a a few small gears, but no other engineered materials are allowed. The truck must carry a load for a distance of 3m. The winning truck is the truck with the greatest ratio of load carried:time.
What do you think would be the best approach to this project in terms of the gears and the radius of the driven wheels?
I don't know what would be the best approach in terms of torque and angular velocity.
Any other tips or inputs would be greatly appreciated!
