team Swinburne shared their Demoulding chassis.
Demoulding the chassis
This wouldn’t be possible without the incredible support and advice from KABER Prototyping and Production, Colan Australia, Nuplex, Gurit, Lavender Composites, Prodrive, and our alumni; Jamie and Andrew.
Check out our flickr page for more photos of the construction and final product.

We’d like to thank ELMOFO (Electromotive Force) for their support of the team with these two new factory-matched Rinehart Motion PM100DZ high-performance inverters. These new inverters are great at driving axial flux motors at high voltages and frequencies, greatly improving the reliability of ts_16 and doubling our power output capability in our top-end RPM range. They look tough, but their exceptional aluminium CNC construction has actually reduced the weight of our vehicle by over 2kg.

We would like to thank Huber+Suhner for supporting the team with this excellent black plastic-reinforced wire spool. The black colour gives it an excellent strength to weight ratio and the highly sophisticated shape makes it an excellent method of transferring traction to the road surface.
We’d also like to thank them for winding it with high voltage cable. The custom orange colour helps us meet safety regulations and the integrated wear indicator allows us to easily inspect abrasion against our carbon fibre monocoque. This particular cable has a very high current handling capability, allowing ts_16 to fully utilize its new wire spool. Thanks Huber+Suhner!
