Wind Tunnel Day

March 03, 2020

This week's big event was the team was able to go to Ford Wind Tunnel #8 to gather some valuable data from wind tunnel testing.  The team was very excited to have this opportunity.  Your donations helped with transportation costs to get to the wind tunnel.  We took a previous year car as our aero package will be very similar to this car.  There are some slight differences with the front wing.  

Again we would like to thank you for your support.

Team Update

March 03, 2020

Hello and thank you again for donating to our campaign.  We wanted to let you know that a friend of the team came in on Saturday and started welding our exhaust tubes together.  They should be finished by this weekend.  We're looking forward to doing some testing with our new headers on our new engine.

Team Update

February 20, 2020

We just wanted to take a moment to update our progress.  The chassis is back from Roush.  We are currently working on getting the pedal box fitted into place.  The spindles are being manufactured and should be done soon.  Next week we head to Ford Wind Tunnel #8 to do design validation of our body/aero kit.
