A plurality of left side propulsion units and a plurality of right side propulsion units extend inwardly toward the centerline and they are supported by the chassis. A vehicle body having a passenger compartment is mounted on the chassis. A source of drive power is mounted on the chassis. Power transmission structure connects the drive power structure to the driven axles of the respective left and right side propulsion units. The propulsion units each have a plurality of cam-shaped wheels mounted on each driven axle. The cam-shaped wheels are oriented on the driven axle so that there will always be an arcuate perimeter segment of one of the cam-shaped wheels positioned to contact the ground surface during each 360 degree rotation of the driven shaft.
Abstract: A method for producing a finished multimedia card (MMC) in a single molding operation in a second stage manufacturing operation. The first stage involves obtaining an already molded top plate and an already assembled printed circuit board (PCB). The second stage involves placing the molded top plate and assembled printed circuit board together in a mold assembly and then placing the mold assembly in an injection molding machine. The printed circuit board is thus only exposed to a single molding operation in order to produce a finished multimedia card such as a memory card. The single molding operation produces an improved quality multimedia card.
