The car assembly, with the non-transparent items being either designed by me completely or with direct involvement. This included:
- Frame - the design was for the meeting of strict safety regulations. It then also had to meet manufacturing limitations of the tube bending and cutting supplier, and packaging of driver, electrical, and suspension.
- Suspension arms and damper linkage geometry (primarily rear). Also jigged and welded them.
- Sheet metal - Firewall, upper firewall/headrest support, fuel splash shield, main floor, front floor. Also guided the design of the exhaust shroud. These were all made of 3003 aluminum, 1/16 and 1/32, and sent by me to lasercutting.
- Wing mountings - plate steel initially (and square tubes in the rear) and later cut out of 6061. The design was based on my concept from the previous year, and the analysis (topology, Solidworks FEA) I helped perform.
