Default Physics Model Car

Hey,

I have this project to do where I have to build a vehicle which will travel 3m and stop on a dime. The dime will be placed 3m. in a straigth line, from the bottom of the launching ramp. Basically I am allowed to build my own ramp and car. However I cannot use any type of prefabricated wheels, no external materials outside of the vehcile that will help stop it.

WHAT I NEED TO KNOW IS HOW TO BUILD THIS KIND OF VEHICLE AND PLEASE GIVE ME SUGGESTIONS ON THE BRAKING SYSTEM.

Thank-you

What you could do, if I'm correct, is make your own ramp and position and practice a lot, so when it comes time to doing the project, you will know what to do!

For the braking system, you could pin the wheels in a little more than usual. This is what I did when I needed to do this for when I was in Cub scouts.

This project sounds very hard! I hope you have really good luck in doing it!
