|WELCOME TO THE WIKI OF THE RED MOUNTAIN MAKERS: BIRMINGHAM METRO'S DIY TECH CO-OP
Our mission as a technical cooperative is to engage in scientific and artistic research, experimentation, and education. To do so, we are adapting a workspace for a collaborative and supportive community of peer and project based education related to technology and artistic expression. We also support the use and development of free and opensource software, hardware and design.
This is a project to modify a kid's Power Wheels jeep to a 25mphr electric go-cart and enter it into the Atlanta Maker Fair Power Wheels race as a Jurasic Park jeep. The Jeep has a trailer mounted with a chaser dinosaur that walks it's legs. T-Wrecks crashed the endurance race having missed the qualifying rounds the day before [due to not being put together yet]. The T-Wrecks' dinosaur, Allison, and the driver jumped the fence as the race was counting down the start. T-Wrecks crashed and broke repeatedly on the track and one of the drivers managed to pop a two wheelie after a turn. T-Wrecks came in 8th place out of 8 jeeps, acquiring over 60 moxie points from one race which rivaled the scores of teams participating in all the races combined. T-Wrecks welcomes your invitations to terrorize public events.
