CMR 67

IMG_1120CMR 67 iterates off the success of CMR 57, with nearly 50 pounds of excess material eliminated while improving overall vehicle performance. Refinements include an eccentric differential tightener, optimized cooling system, and stiffer suspension, which all combined to give CMR 67 the fastest vehicle lap in our Endurance heat at Michigan. Although a series of issues deriving from a blown head gasket prevented us from actually completing Endurance or Autocross, the successful student engineering involved was a milestone for CMR.
