The first task of Newad in the newly formed GSR was to find a “cheap” way to build a car able to compete in the Terra Prix. Thomas and him knew it was better to save on the chassis and bodywork and leave most the budget to be used in technology development and the support vessel. The idea was to go to the main megalopolis and look at recycling centers “something” that would work for the car construction and it was during Newad stay in the North American continent mega polis (USA Today) that he found just what he wanted. “It was not planned, it just happened” he later told Speed Week “I was really tired after 7 days of hard searching in that city, so we decided to take some time off and went in groups to a new resort in the area 51, there I met a person who tells me that in Arizona they were to finish the resources rescue excavations and the search area was very large, so I decided to take a look and after 2 days we found a Micro Factory that belonged to Local Motors “In that place Newad found 10 fuselages in optimal state to be used in the vehicle construction.
Among the things they recovered were 4 tubular chassis (Rally Fighter) a sketching book and a blog. Hiroshi Kojima said, “from the logbook we learned that some one called idesigcars that the fuselages belonged to a secret experimental project made by LM and DARPA. While the purpose of Project Columbia is not described at all.” The fuselages were transported to the Oriental Aerospace Industries Association barracks where they quickly started the Courage C30 design and construction. After the 2065 California detachment as a result of the San Andreas Fault, the government promoted the mass population migration to the central megalopolis. A year later, a violent climate change created a Sand super storm system that covered the entire state of Arizona. 4 vehicles were used to pass impact and fatigue tests that the IPFR performs to each team, 2 were used as the IRC and WDC development fuselages and the remaining 4 are available for the Terra Prix 2085
The Courage C30 design drastically changed the original fuselage structure since it was split into two modules and give the chassis greater flexibility on rough terrain. Branco Teixeira explains: “The Sketches Book that belonged to someone named Aurel gave us a better idea of how to know the structure and thus make the necessary changes. The vehicle module A contains the central photon motor that provides electric power to 6 engines mounted on Courage C30 wheels, the front suspension that is integrated into the engine, to drastically reduce the new ad weight they found the solution in the same airplane concept that uses the BAE 400 motor that is directly loaded by the China base space station’s
At this moment BAE has 5 stations in orbit providing the photon energy needed for their engines around the world, the use of these is not limited to the transportation industry, because at this time, many hotels and residential developments in the United Arab Emirates, China, India, Mongolia and South Africa use the PH-2600 Deluxe motor line with great results regarding the High Gamma Laser reception that Suntech design for the Courage each plate contains hundreds of nano photovoltaic receptors that move energy through the pipe provided by Indeck. To avoid the aluminum module melting point, Vitro developed a special ceramic lining that conducts heat out of the module by means of multiple frontal “gills”. The longitude asymmetric suspension has extra function, by transmitting the electricity generated by the central super-condenser motors located in each wheel.
The active independent suspension system serves at the same time as a style Push / Pull Rod suspension. Inside the main structure there are hundreds of fibers that spin, pull or push the suspension arms according to the conducting necessity or the configuration chosen by the pilot during the race. This suspension complex function is the use of smart materials controlled by bioorganic artificial intelligence developed by a group of bio-engineers at the University of Tokyo. “Just imagine how intuitive organisms function such as trees or jellyfish, that is how our suspension works, “said Hiroshi Kojima “But although it gives the pilot great help, the Courage driving depends on your driving skills and intelligence since it is the one who chooses the torque setting, height and stiffness that the car takes at any given time, the IABO only corrects certain deficiencies along the way “This suspension development provides in real time a multitude of configurations depending of the type of terrain it is going through. The suspension is pre charged by GSR with 6 functions, plus 10 extra (5 per driver) in a memory located on the seat terminal so each driver has its own custom made functions.
