Am having some trouble with a project at the moment and wondered if anyone could help.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Essentailly the project was to design an energy storage sytem to propel a small buggy. We opted for a flywheel, the buggy wheels and hence the flywheel are to be accelerated on a rolling road and then the buggy is to be released on the floor.

The problem I am having is try to work out the torque exerted by the flywheel through the wheels onto the ground, and then hence work out a formula that can tell me whether the buggy will "wheelie" , wheelspin or propell itself forward.

Any help would be much apreciated
