Over the holiday break and the month of January the team has been able to to get a lot of design work complete. With only four months until competition the team is working hard to get all the parts in so the build can happen as soon as possible. A lot of testing has been done such as CVT Spring force testing, Shock testing, and Seat box testing. These smaller test being done are very important as they can prevent future issues during the build. The team has transformed some of their old tractor frame into a dynamometer to help with future testing. This will allow for a safer and more accurate testing plan.
A big thank you to MacDon for conducting our design review earlier this month. As a team we learned a lot and truly appreciate your time. Until parts arrive our team will continue testing (Electrical and Mechanical testing) to help prevent issues arising in the future. Please stay tuned for more exciting team updates!
