Suspension Update

It has been a good month for the new members on the team who have gained some invaluable experience working with new machines and learning new techniques.

With the completion of a running car approaching and parts coming back from sponsors, the suspension team has been very busy lately.

A highlight of our month has been the trip by 3 of our team members down to Bay of Plenty Gear Cutters in Tauranga. It was a unique opportunity for the team to learn from experts in their 􀃶eld about machining and cutting gears.The trip was a complete success, with all parts needed for a running car completed, and a wealth of knowledge gained from the wonderful team at BOP Gear Cutters. Thanks for your support! This month we have also received some crucial components for our new rear beam; the cut metal sheets with which we will weld together to produce the completed beam. The beam is a new feature on our car design this year and we are very much looking forward to putting it to the test! This August, suspension team has predominantly been working on steering components, including the steering rack, pinion, steering column and all of the quick release components. It has been a good month for the new members on the team who have gained some invaluable experience working with new machines and learning new techniques. Suspension team will continue to work hard for the rest of the year, producing spares in preparation for competition.
