The Mechanical Team is responsible for the design and construction of the vehicle's mechanical systems. Systems include the vehicle's chassis, forward and rear suspension, steering, braking, and other mechanical components. One focus of our upcoming vehicle's design is better integrating the mechanical systems with other aspects of the vehicle. We are also working on reducing the vehicle's overall weight through more efficient, compact designs. Our current vehicle, the TexSun, is supported by a tempered aluminum space frame chassis. The three-wheeled vehicle is powered by a 7.5kW NGM SCM150 motor, which we plan on reincorporating in our upcoming car.
