Conor Murnane, frame/body/aero team lead, James Goding, Wazzu Racing Vice President, Justin Graf and Paul Sluss put in a lot of time into doing a composite layup on the foam mold.
This is a fabrication method to create the body's shell. The process involves combining layers of fiber with liquid resin to create a high quality laminate.
After the layers are added, curing happens. This can be done at room temperature or accelerated with an oven.
Ryan Underwood, on the powertrain team, finished the differential mounts.
Our team has put in a lot of hard work these past couple weeks, working fast to get the car done and on the ground. These full-time engineering students are preparing for finals while investing time into building a race car, keep up the good work team!
