update 3

video

This video above was the first few attempts of my balloon car. Although it had reached its assigned distance, it still needs a few improvements such as speed. To improve the speed I will be trying to use other materials a bottle, tissue box, flat surface and toy car wheels to improve the speed of the balloon car.

So far my ideas for my balloon powered car is to make the base of the car out of a box and make the wheels with water bottle caps. If this does not work out i will have to make improvements on my car.
