Topics I've Started
09 July 2008 - 11:07 AMThese are pics of the pnuematic air system that the Formula SAE team ran on our 08 car. I designed it!!.
Instead of going CO2 like most other universities i went unconventional with HPA.
I mounted it on the floor underneath your knees. It was able to hold a 88CUIN 4500 psi tank. The tank dumped into a CP regulator that put the pressure at 135PSI. This the fed two solenoids. The two solenoids ran the shifting.
The clutch ran off of a second line from the CP reg. It ran to a bleeder valve that allowed us to have some play so you can slip the clutch. The design wasnt the greatest and were moving to a hydrolic clutch next year.
The shifting was controlled by push buttons on the steering wheel. The shifting was soo quick ans smooth that you couldn't tell it shifted.
Here are some pics i will have more once i get my actual camera, these are all cell phone pics.

22 May 2008 - 02:04 PMI just recently acquired a Bushmaster Skirmish SI from florentine. When i pump it with air, it opens the vlave before it latches onto the hammer. How can i eliminate this? It seems that the valve spring is weak or that the main spring is too strong.
10 March 2008 - 01:13 PMI tried to change my avatar and it shows me that i did. But all it really did was reshape my old one.
05 March 2008 - 11:41 AMI was wondering what the price would be on a 98c halves with cyclone/richochet hopper , the moveable part of a car stock(everything but the tube it slides on), Raised M16 sight, It also has a double trigger but i only want the trigger gaurd painted and not the actual trigger. Also no barrell, asa.
The pattern i was going for is like the included picture in either a olive and tan combo or an olive,black , and tan combo.
