We've Reached Our Goal!

March 21, 2019

Thank you!

We've successfully reached our $10,000 goal thanks to generous donations from friends, family, and sponsors. Any further donations will go towards travel expenses for Germany and Spain, funding additional critical components for our eCar, and paying for any and all resources needed to be a successful Formula team! With your continued support, we will be race ready at highly competitive international events. We still have a ways to go before we are fully prepared for three FSAE competitions. All donations of any size and shape are still appreciated. 

 

Manufacturing Updates

With first drive quickly approaching, we have been working hard to get this car rolling. Here are some updates from the past few weeks:

  • Thanks to all the hard work from our chassis team, the monocoque chassis has been completed! It has already been painted and its true livery is vinyl wrapped under car camo. No peeking until Unveiling in May! 

  • Electronics and Firmware team have been hard at work assembling and flashing boards. Thanks to Omair, our resident circuits wiz, the mainboard has been fully assembled and is serving as the supervisory board of the BMS. 

  • The undertray is complete, the rear wing mounts have been waterjetted, and the carbon front wing mounts are prepped for testing. The Composites manufacturing and Aero teams pitched in to carefully lay up the undertray through the night and by light, it was ready to be cured.

  • On Drivetrain, the scattershields and motor mounts are assembled and ready to drop into the drivetrain. Special thanks to our shop master, Reggie, for laying down some beautiful welds on very thin aluminum. On top of that, the one piece carriers, motor horns, CV housings and inserts have been manufactured. 

  • In eTrain news, creation of our wiring harnesses has begun! Below is one section of the front harness. Once its complete, it will power driver interfaces and ANACAN. 

  • As for our suspension team, many parts have arrived back from anodization, including several brackets, bell cranks, and brake rotors.Additionally, A-arms have been heat treated and are set to be parkerized in the upcoming days. At this rate, we'll soon have a rolling chassis. 

Thank you for your continued support of UWashington Formula Motorsports! We will continue to provide you with updates about our journey to competition.Subscribe to our mailing list for more UWFM news delivered right to you!

T30 Manufacturing Season Update

February 10, 2019

Manufacturing season is well underway! Our members have been busy turning our 3D models into a tangible 350lb race car. Some important milestones that have happened on our team include:

  • Undertray mold has been machined by Sam Reissman. We are days away from having the mold prepped for layup (Picture 1)
  • Layup for our chassis monocoque has begun. Chassis team is currently working on the core and will begin bagging soon (Picture 2)
  • We have officially registered for Formula Student Germany. We are the only North American team to compete with an electric car (Picture 3)

In other news, we have already raised more than $8000 for our crowdfunding campaign. Thank you to everyone that has helped us make it this far! With rolling chassis and first drive right around the corner, our tech teams are pushing hard to meet this year's aggressive deadlines. We look forward to keeping you updated on the teams activities!
