Note: This one wasn’t for the ramblin’ wrek parade, but for an interschool competition.
Well, Steven Marzec up front, me, Lucas and Brian Cox were involved in converting a diesel Rabbit into a pure electric vehicle, as part of a inter-school competition. Â And, it worked, too, though right at the end we failed to compete (and we were totally bummed) because of some last minute missing roll bar (if memory serves, I think we were working hard to try and just make it work and clean it up, we forgot the roll bar).
It was a pretty good project, especially considering that support was minimal and lots of it came out of pocket. Â I think we all learned a ton coming out of that. Â I still have the T-shirt somewhere, I believe. Â I think if we had one marketing guy, we’d have been real butt kickers.
