Today we managed to put the wheels on the rocket car! To do this, we started by finding a drill bit to make a hole for the wheel nails. After measuring the wheel nails, we decided to use a 1/16″ inch drill bit. After marking the hole, we put the drill bit in the drill press and started drilling. We managed to drill all four holes perfectly! We hammered on the the wheels and the car was functional at last. It rolled in an almost perfect straight line. Tomorrow, we will build a launch controller to set off the rocket.
