With the Shell competition fast approaching, the progress continues. The goal of completing a rolling chassis for the 2015-2016 vehicle by the conclusion of the 2014-2015 season has been achieved. With the attainment of this benchmark a new goal has been set. The new goal for the 2015-2016 chassis is for it to be heat treated and powder coated.
As well as the advancement of the 2015-2016 chassis, improvements for the all electric MP-82e steering geometry were made by the addition of a new steering shaft and Pittman triangle.
A special thanks to Gerhard Maier for his assistance this past weekend with the tuning and Dyno set up of the MP 680’s engine. A major component of our vehicles success is the tuning of the engine and having the appropriate environment to conduct it. We are greatly appreciative of Gerhard for his guidance in this endeavor.
