Project Mon(Tues)day: Pinewood Lowrider

Pinewood Lowrider

Jerome, our squiggly-bearded intern from many moons ago that created the BeetleBot, just pointed us towards this totally pimpin’ pinewood derby car. The author from sliptonic.com shows how he made his sweet lowrider with hydaulic(esque) action by using a small micro-servo for each wheel, an Ardweeny for brains, and a 9V battery for power. The final effect is pretty amusing. Surely, the face of pinewood derby racing has been irreversibly changed forever. And for the better, we might add.
