Sunday, February 2nd
Team workday at the solar car shop - Jake and Chris joined Shannon, Brian, and Pete and continued construction on the new car (see photos below).
We discussed what if any changes that we wanted to make to the side crush zones for the new car, relative to the Advanced division car that we built last year.
We took careful measurements and prepared some sketches of what the dimensions need to be for the new crush zone components.
Shannon plans to use this information during the week, to purchase an additional 4’x8’ sheet of 0.063” aluminum and get them to sheer it using their 8’ hydraulic sheer to the dimensions that we need.
