David Exoo is from North Olmsted, Ohio and will be graduating with a degree in engineering with a mechanical concentration. He has accepted a position with Gentex Corporation, located in Zeeland, Michigan.
David was responsible mainly for the design and selection of the braking system. Because braking the transaxle shaft is how steering will be acheived, the braking system is particularly important. Calculations were done by David to determine the required braking forces, followed by extensive reseach to figure out what type of brakes would be optimal and how much we could get them for. Fortunately for the team, his research determined that the brakes taken off the snowmobiles will suffice.
