Week 9 Updates

For those of you who missed the Wired.com article, here is the link to that:

KSBY, a local news station also featured us on the evening news last week. Seems we've been getting a lot of media attention recently!

The aluminum wheel centers mentioned a couple posts ago have been thinned down a bit. We're done manufacturing all 4 of them as well.

The new material came in to re-do the front axles, and the design for the rear axles is done, so that will be started this Saturday.

Tomorrow, Gabe and Verent are headed down to Santa Barbara for the ECO:nomics conference put on by Wall Street Journal and sponsored by Shell. They'll be showcasing the prototype car down there. It should be exciting! The President of Shell, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy, and President of Walt Disney will be there, just to name a few! Check out more on the conference here.

Pictures to come soon! We're all working hard and with finals coming up in a couple of weeks, there isn't much time to get on here and update.

It's great that you're getting media attention! Sometimes I think it's hard to get these university projects recognized. I'm working on that now for the newly-formed Milwaukee School of Engineering SMV team and it's tough!

Congrats again and thanks for running a fun blog to read!

Nicholas,
Thanks so much! I really appreciate it. I am no engineer (I'm in school for journalism) but think that what you're doing is incredibly important!
