|Getting the car out of the shop was a lot easier this year, since the accumulator container |
has moved. Most of the team still showed up to held move the car.
|The car fits perfectly in Dave's new truck. This also made it a lot easier to transport to the parking lot we test in.|
|There were a last few tasks before we were ready to drive, such as attaching the impact attenuator, fueling, bolt check.|
Test driving on Sunday gave us a chance to really see our progress this year. We were able to test a lot of new systems, including pedal box, steering column, shifter, brakes, fuel system, accumulator container, firewall, engine harness, HV lines, and more.
And just to give some more detailed updates on the race car, here are a few things we've worked in the last couple weeks and over spring break.
|Here's a prototype of the rear box that will hold the motor controller and ECU. It will |
eventually be replaced with an aluminum box.
|A mock-up of the firewall.|
|The new routing for the HV cables is here and looking clean. Fuel system|
and LV battery are also visible.
