This is a CO2 car made for an engineering design class. The cars were drawn on Pro-Desktop and then constructed afterward.

Looks cool, also dangerous, someone could lose an eye or an ankle.
Nice job.

lol race day was a pretty good time =] we have to string fishing line through eye hooks connected to the cars to keep them from launching out.

....although launching them is pretty fun too =p

Sweet car, I remember making those. Our guide line went from the metal shop, through an office and into a wood shop. My car got squirrely and hit the door jamb of the teacher’s office…exploded on impact. Not to be critical, but I think the most aerodynamic design is actually the opposite of what you have there, like a raindrop with the pointy end at the back. It still looks awesome!

Racing 7th graders as a teacher makes me happy lol

Cool looking car…. my son built one somewhat similar for his woodworking class in school… Didn’t turn out as nice as yours, but it won the race part of the competition…
