Check out these freshly CNCed Anti-roll Bar lever arms that were completed this week along with their weight saving-design. With only a few more items to produce CMR 67s suspension can begin final assembly.
Another project that has recently finished can be seen at the often neglected bottom of our engine. Instead of carrying around unnecessary oil weight, we have removed around an inch from the oil pan and welded a lighter aluminum plate higher up on the engine. This has led to a weight savings of over a pound not to mention to lower CG that has also be achieved.
Also pictured are exhaust tubes awaiting assembly and a muffler that is many pounds lighter than last year.

As always, we are extremely grateful for all our sponsors’ support throughout the year. They let us go fast!
With February creeping by, final touches are being made on the chassis and production has begun on many non-structural systems. Check out some of our guys finish welding the chassis, making lathe suspension components, and a mock-up dashboard for preliminary testing and driving feedback.

Also happening are our ever-popular Mastercam parties, with many of us working hard to figure out the CNC and its corresponding program to manufacture more complex parts.
