Meanwhile the underbody is finished. He is now fitted to the chassis.
The finished underbody
The exhaust outlet in the underbody, which leads the hot exhaust gases into the diffuser.
Yesterday, I begann to fill the right hand sidepod with the electrical components. Now, that sidepod is finished except the exhaust pipes. And also the whole KERS is now fitted, although you only could see the control unit in the sidepod and the batterie with its thick red cables.
The 1 Euro Cent coin in that picture has only a diameter of 16,25mm. Now you maybe have an imagination, how tiny these whole details are.
The right hand side pod from the front. The electronical components are packed in a tremendous small area.
Also the whole engine oil cooling system is fitted now.
The KERS batterie is directly fitted to the gearbox. A very unpropitious place for it. The cell has to resist very high temperatures and vibrations. Fortunately my car is much more calm, so I have no fear regarding to my battery. 🙂
