## How do you make a CO2 car race?

- Step 1: Create Design. To create my design, I used CorelDraw x3.
- Step 2: Print Design and Cut. I then laser printed my design on the wood, I used a saw to cut it out.
- Step 3: Drill Holes.
- Step 4: Add Axels.
- Step 5: Use Washers.
- Step 6: Add Wheels.
- Step 7: Add CO2 Cartridge, and GO!
- Step 8: Ask Questions!

**How do you make a co2 Dragster more aerodynamic?**

Three Things You Can Do to Reduce Drag in CO2 Cars

- Golf Balling. Covering the surface of your car with small, semi-circular pits (“golf balling”) does two things.
- Get Low. The bottom of your car experiences just as much drag as the top, so make sure to keep things smooth and straight all the way around.
- Sleek Over Small.

### How fast can a CO2 dragster go?

70 miles per hour

They’re fast, too — on a 65.5-foot (20-meter) track, the cars can cross the finish line in just over a second, traveling at nearly 70 miles per hour (112.7 kilometers per hour)!

**What is the top speed of a CO2 dragster?**

around 90 kilometers per hour

CO2 Dragsters- ‘probably the most popular workshop’ They’re super quick, on a (20-metre) track, the cars can cross the finish line in just over a second, travelling at a top speed of around 90 kilometers per hour.

#### How does thrust affect a c02 car?

When a CO2 cartridge is punctured, the equal and opposite reaction (see Thrust on p. 3) of the gas leaving pushes the dragster away from the launch pod. This force keeps pushing the car forward until all the gas is out, so the car keeps accelerating even after the launch.

### How many tires can a CO2 cartridge fill?

Smaller ones will fill a single road tire. The larger ones can fill two tires. When emptied, the cartridges are not refillable.
