Before the Eagle Works Team began gearing up for the academic year the Eagle Works summer interns were hard at work making as much progress as possible before heavy class loads became an obstacle. 

Below is the design for the front end by Alex Benz,  who worked tirelessly over summer to bring this piece of the car to life. The two motors will be encased by a custom machined aluminium block. A brilliant over-under cooling system will be used to keep the motors from overheating. During Speed Week the team learned that the Salt Flats aren't very flat at all. With that in mind heavy duty off road suspension parts will be used to keep the car from bouncing violently on race day. One last fun fact, Corvette hubs turned out to be a perfect fit to mount the wheels! There's nothing like classic American muscle even on cunning edge of new age technology.
