We will be finished with the preliminary designs by October 1st in time for for submission to the North American Solar Car Challenge for review. We will begin machining the suspension by the first week of October. Additonally, we are having a private company machine the plug for us, so that is expected to be done within a month. We will then fine tune the plug; we aim to construct and complete the female mold before winter vacation.
