Fall break Updates

It's been a productive (and tiring) fall break for those of us who stayed around for fall break.  We finished machining all the hubs, the steering rack supports, started the diff caps, and a few other small parts.  We also built a new intake diffuser, and two plenum halves that are almost ready to be put together into an intake manifold.  Finally, we started and finished our new undertray/diffuser.
The frame jig is done, and now the only thing we're waiting on is for the tubes to come in so that we can send it off to be welded.  Things are looking pretty good so far.
