With CMR 67 completed and fully running, we’ve begun extensively testing, tuning, and driver training in the Morewood parking lot to maximize our performance. Today we actually had 67 and 57 driving simultaneously, one of the first time CMR has had two running cars in many years.
Check out some sweet action shots:
After a week packed with team members in the garage finishing the car, CMR 67 now officially runs! Tonight the car underwent its first dynamic testing under its own power and has started with great success. All components have been functioning as intended, and with time still left to fine tune the engine, the team is very optimistic for a great Competition!
The carbon-fiber body has also now been sent to our friends at PPG for finishing and painting after a heroic effort by the CMR composites team. This new, sleek and lightened design will really make 67 turn heads in a little over two weeks.
Stay tuned for more pictures and videos as testing continues.
This weekend dozens of man-hours were poured into CMR 67 to finalize installation. The cooling system, intake, and exhaust have been completed to nearly finish powertrain, and all suspension links have been connected. With only a few minor additions needed, 67 could be racing within days.
With Competition little more than a month away, complete sub-assemblies have been pouring into the garage after final protective treatments. Check out our shiny exhaust tubes, the newly arrived anodized aluminum parts, and our colorful, innovative differential.
Along with ongoing body work, CMR has reached the stage of full implementation, with all systems working to piece their components together on the chassis so testing can begin.
