Battery Update: Front and Rear Pack Arrangement

 After a long week of CADding and designing, Joey managed to generate a design for the front and rear packs of our car thanks to input from the meeting of the minds we had last week. In total this pack will be 58s64p distributed between the front and rear of the car, giving us a roughly 72kWh pack! The team had an internal design review this past Saturday with Prof. Dan Frey to look over everything, see if any considerations were left out, and generate ideas about wiring and assembly of the packs.

Tuesday we had a design review with our battery providers Boston Power. The meeting went well, and they provided us with even more ideas to consider including crashworthiness, cooling, wiring, and weatherproofing.
