February Blog Post!

February 27, 2018




Our main goal for this month was to finish the roll cage frame and adjust it to the two drivers. We decided on a double roll bars for better protection and durability. The team has been helping each member become a better welder. Our Power Drive team pondered about the many different types of steering mechanisms we could use, but in the end, we decided we would use skids steer. Adjusting to the drivers, we bolted on our 5 piece safety harness to our roll cage frame.  Adding a protective metal sheet, that will need to be padded, behind the drivers head for extra protection. We mounted our motor, batteries, and wheel to the back of our vehicle. We connected the batteries to the motor testing to see if everything was moving smoothly, and it all surely did go good. February has come to an end, and for March, our goal is to finish our steering mechanism and cover up our vehicle. Once we have finish covering, it will be time to unleash the beast on the streets to test drive the Cadet Rider.
