Jake, Morgan, and Kaya have begin to assemble a new 48 volt master panel that will be located over the 48 volt battery box, which will house the solar charge controller, motor controller, and the new telemetry system. #SolarCarWorkdays
Steven removes the floorboard from the car. Steven uses the cut-off saw to begin removing an unneeded portion of the frame in the front, that will allow us to create a more aerodynamic nose cone and stay within the overall rulebook maximum length for the car. Mark sketched out a proposed rough design for the new swing arm rear suspension.
We safely remove the old rear suspension and start to work on disassembling the other parts of the car, as needed, to start making the 2018 modifications. There is a significant amount of the 48 volt drive system that we need to remove, so that we can relocate it behind the driver for less weight and better cooling.
