Update: Week of Sept. 17

This week has been a pretty eventful one at the Duke Motorsports garage. Last Saturday, we did some carbon fiber work on the new intake manifold, which turned out great. We applied 2 layers of carbon fiber, and will be adding some reinforcement ribbing in between layers to ensure that the manifold will not flex under the vacuum generated by the motor.

Back to the grind!

We just finished our second successful week at the garage with a visit by some of our own alumni, Dave Coccarelli and Mike Spohn of GE Healthcare. They came by to give us a talk about internship and full-time opportunities with General Electric, especially regarding the highly acclaimed Edison program. They definitely had a full crowd of eager underclassmen!
