Finals this week for UCD students, which is good and bad. Good for us because no one is in the machine shop because they're studying. Bad for us because our members are studying and we can't utilize most of the open machine shop time. Regardless, with enough parts fabricated, we were able to piece the car together into a roller.
Steering knuckle machined and attached. This was this week's biggest project as it was the final and most crucial piece to get the car into 'roller' status.
HVE progressing even further.
Lots of elbow grease and one late night later, the car is now rolling.
HVE fitted into place for testing.
Car packed up and ready to head down to the bay area for a presentation.
Team captain Matt Klein was invited down to give a presentation to the Electric Auto Association - Silicon Valley chapter, hence our big push to bring the car together. The presentation went very well and the car gathered much interest from the members of the EAA Silicon Valley chapter. They even graciously gave the UCD Formula Hybrid team a donation and treated the presenters to lunch! Thanks guys!
