Chassis & general update

Lab Note #1
Apr 19, 2014

Hello Viking Motorsports formula electric supporters,

It has been a while since I have posted an update, mostly due to devoting time to the electric race car and studies/homework.  We got the motor controller programmed and the motor running, video on youtube.

Also, the chassis has come a long ways, and will probably be finished and ready for paint within 2-3 days.  Mitering round tubes in three dimensions is much more difficult than it looks.  Luckily, welding mild steel is forgiving and can easily bridge gaps and not compromise the structural integrity of the chassis.  

Please wait...
