MODELLING OF BODY STARTED

Cross sections of the body in the CAD design have been plotted en were cut from foam material. The resulting model at scale 1:5 serves as starting point for further development of the body. For more information, contact us at info@silvermine.nl  

MECHANICAL PART OF PROTOTYPE COMPLETED

The engine has been permanently installed, and all systems have been connected; also all sensors have been fitted. A thermal insulation coating has been applied to the exhaust gas piping and the catalytic converters. The hydraulic circuits for the brakes and the clutch have been filled-up and were tested. The air filter boxes have been […]

ENGINE TEST-FITTED, REAR WHEEL PARTS READY

The engine has been fitted in the rear sub-frame, and pipe systems for fuel supply/return, inlet air, exhaust gas and cooling water are currently being specified and produced. The electric wiring loom for the engine has been connected including the aft relay group, the battery has been installed. All parts for the rear wheel carriers […]

REAR FRAME ASSEMBLED

The rear sub-frame assembly has been mounted on the central structure by means of high-strength aluminium tubes, and mounting brackets for the wishbones and spring/damper units have been fitted. The sub-frame integrates CNC-machined aluminium front and rear webs with aluminium/Nomex® sandwich panels in the bottom. The complete sub-frame can be quickly dismounted from the central […]

GEAR CHANGE CONTROL AND ELECTRIC INSTALLATION

The short-stroke gear change mechanism, designed and produced in-house by Ferron bv, has now been installed and tested. Push-pull cables with limited slack connect the control side with the gearbox. In the central structure the wiring loom has been installed, including front relay box, dashboard and control switches. Front and rear sub-frames are connected through […]

FRONT END AND PEDAL BOX FINALIZED

The front sub-frame has been fitted spring-damper combinations, cylinders for brake and clutch systems, and electric connections. A torsion bar made out of spring steel forms the anti-roll bar. The pedal box is finalized and is provided with a brake light switch and adjustable end stops. For ease of (dis)mounting, the box has been executed […]
