2015 February Report
Hello again from the 2014-2015 Electric car crew! We have continued to work on the car this month. Cody and Emmett have finished the wings for the car, David and Jacob have attached the nose on the front of the car, and Cole has finished shaping the tail of the car. It is all coming together very nicely. Last month Cody and Emmett had decided to use the old swing arm and this month they put that swing arm in. We will keep pressing on to get the work done for our first race at the end of March.
2015 January Report
Hello 2015! This year we have been working very hard on the new electric car we have started. Our team includes Emmett Beckler, Cody Zumpfe, Cole Dickinson, Adam Smith, Jacob Stutzman, David Segner, and Me (Shelby Roth). This year we have decided to create a whole new car from scratch. We have been putting this car together from starting the canopy to creating the bottom structures. This month Cole and I have put bondo on the car to make it hard and we are now sanding it all down. Sanding is a lot of work, but compared to the other guy’s jobs of welding and putting other metals together we have the easy job. Cody and Emmett have been working on the swing arm for quite some time now and they thought they had done it right. As they kept working on it they realized that it wasn’t going to be able to work for our car so we will be using the swing arm from the old car. David, Jacob, and Adam have been putting the roll bar together. This is important because if we were to have an accident it would help the person inside be safer. We have also put in the steering for the car which is obviously important to drive.
