Keith Zanghi

Lars and Ed were once again working on the internal hydraulic crane in the race car transporter.  The guys have been working on gremlins for some time now.  If you know much about hydraulics, give Ed a call.  During the week Lars did some work at his machine shop in Longview.  He created some spacer plates for the Wilwood brakes.

Steve Rima was working on the steering system computer module.  Keith finished up welding the right hand mid-wheel fairings to keep dirt from accumulating in the recessed pockets.   Next week he will finish up the left hand side.  Cory did some updates on the electrical system.

In the upcoming week, Lars, Keith and Ed will be traveling to Longview WA to give a talk to the Olympic Elementary School 5th graders.  This will be the 2nd year in a row for the school.
