Project Update

Posted: March 10, 2011 in Uncategorized

This is just a little update as to where our project is at the moment.

Wheels: The Cannondale Hubs that we received are all spoked up (thanks Kentwood Cycle)  and ready to go on the car as soon as our tires come in.

Chassis: The basic aspect of the chassis are finished, we need to add some cross braces to restrict some twisting in the chassis. Also the role bar is almost ready to install wich will also help with the stability of the chassis.

Engine: We have installed our new jetted carburetor using a new intake that we machined. As soon as the rest of our drive train components arrive we will be able to install the engine on the chassis.

Overall the project is moving along very well, we hope to have a rolling chassis by next Friday before we all go on spring break.  We will also be finishing up our design report for the competition and will upload it as soon as it is complete.
