Last Month Highlights - Manufacturing!

These are the Composites team's first two gel coated molds for the head restraint and seat. The next step is to perform a carbon fiber layup on these molds!
On the left side are the Wheel Package team's hub, nut, and upright. On the right are the Drivetrain team's differential and motor bracket!
Here is the progress of the chassis. All tubes are fully welded, and now the subteam tabs are undergoing their final welds!

Team Manager Spotlight

  • Kyle Sager is a fourth year Mechanical Engineering major and the team manager for FRUCD.
  • He is a relentless worker that likes helping out the subteams in the shop by milling, welding, lathe working, you name it!
  • He is a key driver in making sure that all the subteams stay on track by providing constructive advice in their designs and manufacturing processes to ensure that they run smoothly.
"What drew me to this club was the ability to take what I learned in coursework and apply it in the form of a product. Over the course of four years, it's gone from an interest of mine on campus to what I'm most passionate about doing throughout the daily routine of school. Formula, over the years, has taught me many things, and created some great friendships. It is an awesome organization to be a part of that every school should have."

-Kyle Sager
This will be Kyle's fourth year as a driver for our team. He was a driver for FE4, FE5, and FE6, and he will be a driver for FE7 this year!
