Times Are Changing

As we enter this new phase, our project takes a transformative leap. No longer a side pursuit, Revolve NTNU becomes the sole focus of a dedicated group within our team. A select few remain in Trondheim for the summer, fully committing themselves to the task of bringing our race car to its pinnacle of performance. This transition marks a significant shift as we transition from a project managed alongside our studies to an all-encompassing, around-the-clock endeavor.

To maximize efficiency and ensure optimal progress, we divide the team staying in Trondheim into two shifts. The night shift takes on the crucial responsibility of preparing the car, meticulously fine-tuning every detail, and ensuring that it is ready to unleash its power on the track. Under the moonlit skies, the night shift works diligently, sparing no effort to transform the race car into a precision-engineered masterpiece.

Simultaneously, the day shift assumes the vital role of pushing the car to its limits. They conduct rigorous testing, exploring every facet of the car's capabilities and fine-tuning its performance based on empirical data. With the sun illuminating their path, they embark on a relentless pursuit of optimization, working tirelessly to extract every ounce of speed, agility, and efficiency from the vehicle.

This division of labor allows us to strike a harmonious balance, ensuring that no moment is wasted. The night shift prepares and refines the car for the day shift's intensive testing sessions. And as the sun sets, the night shift takes over once again, continuing the iterative process of improvement.

This period of round-the-clock dedication demands sacrifice and unwavering commitment from our team members. It requires a shared understanding that sleep may become a luxury and personal time may be scarce. Yet, amidst the long hours and relentless efforts, the team spirit burns brighter than ever.

Every late-night session and every early morning test becomes an opportunity for growth, both individually and as a team. We learn to trust one another's expertise, communicate seamlessly, and make split-second decisions in pursuit of perfection. It is a time of intense collaboration, where our collective knowledge and diverse perspectives intertwine, driving us towards unprecedented heights of achievement.

As the car takes shape and our collective efforts bear fruit, the anticipation for the competition season grows exponentially. The countless hours invested in the workshop and the rigorous testing sessions become a testament to our unwavering dedication and a source of immense pride.

In the coming months, we will embark on an unforgettable journey — a journey fueled by relentless optimization and collective passion. With each passing day, we edge closer to the ultimate test — the competition. It will test our car but also our teamwork and knowledge. To be among the very best we need to know among the very most.

The summer work is a crucible that will forge us into a stronger, more resilient team. It is a chapter filled with exhilarating days, where the car's performance is honed to perfection. And as we venture into this uncharted territory, we are filled with anticipation, excitement, and an unwavering belief that our hard work and dedication will leave an indelible mark on this season's Formula Student competitions.
