A New Semester

    The spring semester has officially commenced here at RPI. We've been as busy as ever here at Rensselaer Formula Hybrid as we transition from the designing portion of our project, to the building part. I want to first share with you some photos that were taken just before winter break during one of our testing sessions. This particular day was great fun and ended up being a wonderful team building activity as well.

    You'll begin by seeing us inching through hallways and down stair cases, holding the car up ourselves. This is the only way we can get the car in and out of our shop. It's crazy, but we always seem to orchestrate it just right.

    Next, you'll see the car as we prep it for a run.

    Soon after the test day, we all went home for the holiday break. One of the projects that was still in the works, even though classes were not in session, was the chassis. Over the break we received a box filled with laser cut tubes from Cartesian Tube Profiling, which would need to be welded together into a finished chassis.

    Over the past few weeks, our mechanical team leaders have been hard at work jigging, tacking, and welding the chassis together. It is still not entirely complete, but in the photos below, you will be able to see a fairly complete cockpit area.

    Thanks for checking in Hybrid fans. Visit us again for an update in the near future.

  1. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.

    Would you be interested in having me write a guest post for your blog? My field of expertise is in writing self-development materials and I'd figure out that although your blog's niche isn't exactly on personal development, your audience would still find an occasional self-help article on your blog to be of great benefits every once in a while.

    My procedures for writing a guest post is simple and it's like this:

    1) send me a blank email, using your blog's url as the message subject to my email address at danieluyi.com@gmail.com
    2) I will reply the email by sending you a zip file which will include the guest post I've written in a .txt file and the images to be included inside the post.

    I understand the effects of duplicate contents on a site's ranking in Google SERPs so I never duplicate any guest post that I freely write for other bloggers but all I ask in return is a link back to my blog that I've included in the author bio section at the bottom of my guest post.

    I've already written a special guest post for your blog that I know your audience would love to read and if you're interested, just start by taking the #1 step of sending me a blank email as I've explained above.

    My blog covers a lot of interesting and helpful posts just like yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. I'm hoping to hear from you too and quickly, you've got a great blog here.

    Regards, Daniel from http://danieluyi.com
