we have to build vehicle that can transport a d cell battery 7 meters as fast as possible using the potential energy of no more than 2 kilograms falling from 80cm.

we want to use this design:

If your school has a machine shop, use that. It should have a supply of wood that you can use to construct the frame. If you can't make metal wheels, you might have to improvise with wooden ones.
