Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi All,

I'm building a balloon car and I'm in need of ways to increase the speed of the car.

Here's a description: Attach a balloon to a car. Rave the balloon powered car over 3 meters. The car must move on its wheels and the sole source of propulsion must be provided by the balloon.

Okay so I guess my question is, where should the balloon be placed to get the fastest movement, what materials should I use, how should I design the car. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Stefan

The balloon should be placed at the inlet to the piston, "obviously".. :smile: Do you realise though, half the point of the task is creativity?

internal combustion engine, or propulsion?

I have been a macanic for 30 years. I would use ten speed tires. They are ment to go faster and are lighter. It is just a thought. I hope you do well.
