Project Description & Impact:
We endeavor to compete in the Shell Eco Marathon in April 2022. Over the course of the last 2 years, a car has been built, but with many flaws. We are rebuilding a completely new car, in hope of developing a better frame, engine tuning, and body design.
Project Completion Plan:
The body takes the most time. A plug is made of foamboard and sealant, then a mold will be made of fiberglass, and finally, carbon fiber.
A separate team is mounting the engine and components, and another working out the electrical system for the Car. A step by step plan is being followed but is much too large to be included here
