1999 Cable Car Competition

TCC Engineering Club
1999 Cable Car Competition

On Thursday, February 25, 1999, the TCC Engineering Club hosted a Cable Car Competition.  The goal of the contest was to build a cable car that could propel itself along a 20' cable, bump into a board at the end, at return 20' to the finish line in the least amount of time.  The cable car had to be built using a 12,000 rpm 3-12V DC motor and a 9V battery, which were supplied in a kit purchased from the club.
