Katelyn builds her first work bench with the help of the team. She gracefully learns how to man an impact driver and framing screws. Bench will be used to house RC and Robot carpet track when not in use. STEM Cycle has been released from summer storage and is now ready for testing and tuning. Brown's gravity car build begins with Charlie's assistance. New members are in the process of applying to be team members and sponsorship drive has begun. EV Team hits fall 2017 wide open....
Perry's Automotive sponsors EV Team with automatic retractable air hose reel. Now we can learn how to work like the pros at Perry's. Thank You!
Sherwinn-Williams donated a perfect sized carpet to be used in our shop for robot and remote control car tracks. We will be able to roll it up perfectly when not in use in the back of the shop. Thank You Everyone at Sherwinn-Williams North Wilkesboro!
The long awaited upgrade from 36 to 48 volt cushman motor. This will increase performance by approximately 25%.
This year the EV Team is using an idea taken from the Appstate Solar Vehicle Team. Potential new members are allowed to shadow existing members for 2 weeks before applying. This gives anyone interested the opportunity to see what it is like day to day on the team before they commit. This year could be the largest EV team on record.
Tolbert finishes 1st in Super Stock and Break out while Charlie finishes 1st in Street Stock and 2nd in Breakout. All this on new fresh and packed red clay with a little sweet coca-cola mix sprinkled on top...
Please excuse the mess! Making room for Tarheel Blue air lines!
