Eagle Works Advanced Vehicle Lab is committed to one goal: pushing the limits of engineering. We have chosen to do so by breaking an E2 class electric land speed record, a record that has not been touched since the 90's. We have been working tirelessly since the beginning of the project in 2014, putting in hundreds of man-hours each week. Some members even dedicate their entire summers to working on the project. But projects like these take time, and since we are a student-run organization, time is not something we have an excess of.
Eagle Works was dedicated to breaking the E2 record this summer at Bonneville Speed Week. This is the time-frame we had advertised to the public, and the time-frame we had told Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Our members have put their hearts and souls into this team, and up until a few months ago, this goal was still realistic. But since we are all students, school always comes first, as Eagle Works is a completely extra-curricular organization. We want our members to succeed in every aspect of their lives, especially in academics, but we also want to create a product we are can look at and be proud of. This means we do not want to cut corners to deliver a product before it is truly ready.
With that being said, I would like to formally announce to everyone who is following the project that we will be pushing our record attempt date up until the Summer of 2019. This will give us a year to finish integration and validation of all systems, and give us even more time to perfect the car even more than we are already shooting for.
Thank you to everyone for all of your continued support, and we look forward to chasing this dream with all of you by our side.
Keep the Rubber Side Down,
President, Eagle Works Advanced Vehicle Lab
