* Work on the 2008-09 car is now well underway. The engine modifications, i.e converting side valve to overhead, shifting position of camshaft, addition of a sleeve to reduce bore are at a fairly advanced stage and should be completed within the next few weeks. Anupam and Vinay are waiting to pounce on it and lug it off to their electronics hide-out to fit it with EFI, CDI and related paraphernalia.

* Rejoice ! Rejoice ! New SAE identity cards have finally arrived !

* Shreyas, JK and Deepak (in collaboration with too many tormented souls to enumerate) have worked a minor miracle with the chassis design and it is now firmly on the ansys workbench. With a little bit of luck we will be at the machinists with that by the 27th of november.

* Word on the street is that we may soon have a new workshop on college premises somewhere in the vicinity of the new tennis courts. If confirmed we can all (quite literally) heave a collective sigh of relief. (Without inhaling half a ton of dust)

* Rejoice! Rejoice ! Arjun 'cow' Rao is finally on the job ! Instumental in pushing the papers for the new workshop, a CFD course conducted by the wonderful people at CD Adapco was also set up by cow. Releasing next week, 'Cow doing shell design'!

* A visit to Pune has been arranged to follow up on the eco-marathon hydrogen engine by obtaining some expert advice.

* The search for further funding is still on.

More updates will follow......

All members of RVCE Supermileage team have keen interest in automobiles. Spurred by the growing global concerns over oil-crisis, climate change, green technology and the likes, the team came out with a common vision to build a super fuel-efficient car.

The project not only gave us a chance to implement the concepts we had learned as theory, but also helped each one of us in unleashing the potential to innovate and find reasonable solutions to practical problems. The bridging of theoretical concepts with practical undertaking proved to be invaluable in reinforcing knowledge while teaching us to think out of the box. The many innovative solutions we were forced to uncover due to practical considerations have led us to mature our understanding and knowledge.
