It's pretty simple right? plop a motor in, drop some batteries in, a controller, some wire, some more wire.
But is it really that easy?
An interview with the people who you worked with, with them talking about what they needed from you to make their part of the job work, maybe some tips from them on how to stay on their good side.
Info on how you became set on your design, showing how some of the less common tools that were needed were used.
If you do it with a CD rom then info on motor specs or voltage specs and how it can make a size of car like a metro perform, I bought the book "build your own electric motorcycle" and it's lacking in specs on the machine they built "can go highway speeds" but nothing about exact top speed or what allows it to reach that, their motor controller section is so vague I got worried that I wasn't able to focus enough to retain info, so don't be afraid to say "this is what this can do" and "this is why".
