Winter break? More like Winter Work!

The Vehicle Team has been hard at work this winter break, jigging, assembling, and welding the frame. Paden Albin, our welder, spent nearly 3 weeks just training, while Adrian Villarreal and John Ivey have been hard at work putting together an accurate jig to hold all the important bars correctly in place.

 

During the entire assembly process we put up a GoPro for a timelapse view of our team. You can check that out here!

Electrical Team making progress!

The electrical team has finished wiring up the MegaSquirt 3 ECU and confirmed it is working. They have made progress on the active aero system by beginning the purchase list, along with the rear wing design in Solidworks, a program the electrical team is completely unfamiliar with yet they have made massive progress in learning the required skillset to overcome their challenge. They are still deciding on what path is the best to take in the overall data acquisition and control system they are currently designing to give the car a intelligent competitive edge in the competition.

Table fabrication continues!

With the help of Shane Arabie, our table has progressed toward a flat and usable jig table! The subframe has begun construction, cut and welded by our very own Paden Albin. The table should be finished and true by next Monday!
