Pit Road
Hello everyone!
Megan and I are checking in again from the Friend Electric Car Team. This past month has been a whirl wind of crazy events. We stated in our last report that we would have already raced in three races, but due to minor complications with the PowerDrive program, we have only raced in one race. Our car passed inspection and we were ready to race. Jay was our driver that would go through the maneuverability and braking part of the day. He did very well and couldn't wait to start the race. Caden was our second driver and after Jay had finished his 30 minutes in the car it was time take our pit stop. We finished the race in first place for the Standard Class cars and also in over all classes. We completed 31 laps in one hour, breaking the previous record of 30 that Friend also held at this race. We are excited to continue racing over the next couple of weekends and will report again after our season is completed!
Until next time.
Yours truly,
The Friend S13 Electric Car Team
March Madness-Shop Edition
Hello everyone,
We are back again from the Friend Electric Car Team! We have recently been putting many extra hours in over these past couple of weeks. It has finally clicked in all of our heads about how close our first meet actually is to being here. In our last report, we had just began to work with the fiber glass on the top canopy of the car. We have since finished that project and are putting on the final touches to it. Our project right now it the daunting task of enclosing the bottom half of the car. Our goal is to have this done by the end of the week so we are able to continue to make progress on the car. In our next report, we will have competed in three races and we will be able to give a little more info on how our final product came to life on the track.
Stay tuned and we will see you all next month!
Yours truly,
The Friend S13 Electric Car Team

February's Progress
Great afternoon!
Megan and Isabel coming at you again from the Friend Electric Car team. We have been hard at work and our car is beginning to come to life. Caden, Zeb, and Keighton have been the master welders on the shock absorber mount. We had to make a few adjustments in order for the car to sit properly. At the same time, the rest of us were hard at work preparing the top canopy form to be ready for the fiber-glassing stage. In this past week, we began the fiber-glassing process and will continue to work with that for a few more weeks. Everyday, we see the progress that we have made on the car and are all anxious to see the final project.
Until next time.
Yours truly,
The Friend S13 Electric Car Team
First Semester Friend Electric Car 2016-17 S13
Hey everyone, Friend Electric Car team here.
We are hard at work building our new car that we will race this year. So far we have completed the top canopy form and the frame of the chassis. The guys do the welding for the assembly of the chassis, while Megan and I work on the documentation, are the resident machinists, as well as being the mom's of the group to keep everyone in line. In the next few weeks we will finish the front axle that Jay and Edward have been working on, and the motor mount that Caden, Will, Zeb, and Keighton have put work into.
Until next time.
Yours truly,
The Friend S13 Electric Car Team
