After a very busy spring break we're exceptionally close to a running car! While we're waiting on the last piece or two we've been finishing up the wiring harness, aero kit, dry sump system, steering wheel, differential, and much much more! Stay tuned for more and we hope to see you at Rollout on April 6th!

With the days dwindling down towards our many deadlines production has been in full swing! This weekend our composites team made massive progress on layups for our aero kit as well as the molds for our bodywork and radiator ducting. Engine team began disassembling our 2012 competition motor for rebuild and modification now that our freshly rebuilt motor is up and running on the dyno. RM23's headers have been completed and are almost ready to be sent for coating, and electrical team completed the dyno wiring harness for our new Motec M150 ECU!
Many shiny parts are due in over the next few days, and we can't wait to get them on the car! ...
The parts and materials that arrived last week have kept Bumstead bustling all weekend long! The engine team is wrapping up reassembly of our 2012 Honda CBR600RR. Our fabricators cranked out the fuel tank, oil tank, and began the radiators and pedal box. Electrical team made excellent progress on the new dyno harness and preparation for RM23's electrical harness. And last but certainly not least our composites team made furious progress on the aero kit, prepping all the wing cores for layup and completing 3 layups.
