Day 14: Fudge made a new fuel cell and is going to test drive on his lawn mower by converting it from a petrol to a hydrogen fuel supply and then changing back if successful or not.
It worked XD

Day 7 & 8: Todays session put a MAJOR speedbump in our project, we have to run our engine on hydrgen, if done right it will be energy efficient and healthy foir the environment, if it is unstable, one of us will be fried beyond recognition. oh well, we are going to give it a go anyway.

Day 2: Today we had a problem. because we are building a kart of sorts its not just an engine we need, we need a whole driveline (engine, clutch, gearbox, diff etc.) but this hasn't put us off. We might be looking for a secondhand car now, soon the perfect thing will pop up.
Day 1: Today was the first day of our project. We had a big brainstorm to decide what we were going to build. Originally we were just going to get an engine to experiment with eg. Turbo, NOS etc. but we deemed it to be too dangerous. We the decided to build a race car based on an Ariel Atoms frame. We "called in" some favours (Fudges dad) and he agreed to help us out. he made some phone calls and began tracking us down a free, reliable, running engine. We are pleased with our progress so far. We began to surf the net for aftermarket and second hand turbos and parts.
The Perfect Model: The Nissan Skyline R35 GTR
352kW of power, thoroughbred racing heritage and the ability to reach 100km/h in just 3.5 seconds, it's easy to see why The Nissan GT-R is the dream of every red-blooded supercar enthusiast.
But the problem is, we cant have it, so we are getting a carby engine,giving a turbo and puting it on a frame, so in no time we'll be flying.
I, Terminator am in this Project with a nerdy friend, Fudge and we will post journals for feed back and thoughts from our peers and supervisors.
