2SRI Assessment

This is a post specially dedicated to 2SRI and i mean those that really work hard for the project despite all the bombardments we received during our assessment day..i seriously hates this major project on Shell Eco Marathon Urban Concept vehicle due to the dumb process..there will be a lot of pictures in this post as pictures speaks a thousand words..I will leave out my disappointment during the process of succeeding my group project because i felt that i am in a better situation compare to my roommate's...a 4 people group project became 3 ppl group project...this is also for those who do not have a single idea on what is my course about.....and HERE IT GOES...


Entering the Pit Stop is....Shell Eco Marathon Vehicle

Below is how our modelling goes...We start off with a big ass foam and we need to sand it into shape...Just imagine making Austin Power's Fat Bastard into Paris Hilton

It started with a cube.....measuring and drawing on the foam so we can actually sand it correctly

With yours truly, in action
I'm making the top to actually look like my design all by myself...ehsan later touch up a bit of it
We too have our fun chatting and sanding away...Forgot what the hell we two spoke
Tadahhhh......this is after a few hours of hard work whipping it into shape...If we could eventually turn this into a workable slimming programme, I will be so filthy rich that I'm going to make gold sticks for cotton buds and all my toilet papers will be at least RM50 notes...
The wheels that I MAKE from wood...with just band saw and sanding machine to get that bloody precision and also sanding it to look smooth

This is after putting in putty and sprayed with silver undercoat..I forgot to take a picture of how it looks like with putty..For those who do not know what is it, go google it up...That's the purpose of internet....The process of applying putty and sanding it to looks glossy enough to have a reflection of yourself tooks 3 days...
Not everything goes well, me, ehsan, and nisa were trying to fix up cracks, holes, and also the paint melted away due to overexposure to the bloody sun... Can you see how glossy is the windscreen? the yellow spots are putty...
When the finishing is done!!!!!
The back lights of the car...It was cut by my junior, Sai Yun and i only in charge of sticking it to the ass of the car...I also did the 3D modelling of the car and it is one of the hardest modelling i ever build..At least now i'm good at it

Above is the 3D modeling that i did..It was hard...I MEAN REALLY HARD.....i hate the finishing that Rhino renderer gave me and it makes my model looks too much like a toy car...damn it...
The panel was done by ehsan and the mock-up which i forgot to take photos of are by nisa and ooi chan...the white stuff there is our initial design and we did that from 9 at night till 4 in the morning a month plus ago.....
This is after we had arranged everything for the assessment that awaits us on that day...please ignore the fact that i wore a bloody sport shoes for my presentation...I'm too poor to buy a pair of leather shoes (haha of coz i'm bullshitting, i apparently saw the cost of making a pair of leather shoes when i work for Larrie last time and i felt it is a complete ripped off to buy them)..although this is my design for my group project, i'm seariously unsatisfied with it...too many considerations not done....

So the contestants of the day are.......

Eric, Ehsan, Ooi Chan, Nisa, Ayue
Namizam, Fadh, Rai, Jim Fong, Aini
Pian, Hakim, Cia, Aisha, 33
Sze Jin, Chai Lei, Tiha, Quek, Sab
And i think i would pick SJ's group as the top among all of us...so here is a token of appreciation for their work...

The last picture is the full scale drawing of the car...


AND now.....WE WILL MOVE ON TO SRI2014 section 2 for their project....Manual Lawn Mover.......Before i start off with the presentation of their work, i would like to clarify something...It's true that from the topic itself, I might think the title Shell Eco-Marathon would be more interesting and appealing...However, u guys did a far better job than we did due to some circumstances....If u guys did get criticized during your presentation, dun assume that we didn't..we honestly went through a hell lot worse comments than you all...So please dun prejudice against us and thought that we are the better side as we are not.....I'm giving credits to hard workers and achievers.....SO....Let's proceed...


So...who do i think is the best among all these prototypes? There's only one, and i bet most fellow course mates will agree that in terms of effort and skills, we shall give way and bow to our very own God and King, Raja for his group's prototype..Below are the following pictures.....

This prototype was fully self-manufactured and basically it started from scratch..This baby can simply cut off any thickness of grass and if your fingers get caught within the blades, u guys better find a way of joining them back again...Even the casing was made from fiber glass..they did all these by themselves and they pay no one to finish the job...Fucking pro and Godlike skills for a degree undergraduate...they gone through Welding, Grinding and many more processes...I really felt that my project is fucking noob compare to them...They created and design their own mechanism when many just modify from existing products and took the parts from actual product....I will definitely modify from existing too because I'm no way near the Godlike status of Raja(that's his name btw...befitting to be the king among us in ID)
The mock up family.....
Look at the Solidworks 3D production....can they be better???
Apparently, they CAN be better....look at the mock up....the proportion and you have no idea how thin is the bloody form.....If u do not know what is a foam, then i might as well brief a little here....It looks like a sponge only much harder, those are the things that ppl buy, stuff them in a vase and poke in fake flowers to decorate the house...
This are made from Gibson board, a plastic like mounting board or card board for those that dunno what is a mounting board...This thing can actually function exactly like the actual model...you moved it, the blades moved too.....
The inner mechanism of the project...Look how sharp is the blade...
The handle is made from PVC pipe and can be adjusted...
The inner part of the prototype...Can you build this shit up from scratch with only a team of 2 ppl? Give me 5 and i might not be able to do it as well as them....

These are the candid shots that ppl "curi-curi" improve their model before their presentation...haha

Xian(picture) was cursing me badly when i took this picture...Here how the conversation goes....

Me: CB, now cannot repair model la..Everyone finish touch up dee and u here kap siao take extra time ah? ..Gonna take picture and blog it

Xian: Oi, CB Eric....Dun kap siao ah.....Dun take...oi..oi...OI....OIIIIIII I SAY DUN TAKE LA....Che Mat think i pro de...what if he see your blog then say i noob....OI....DELETE LA....CB, Later i throw your camera from 5th floor here...Wait and see....you wait.....

Me: Throw lo...then u forever dun need take "videos" from me already.....

(silence for 5 seconds)

Xian: Eric, you damn leng chai today la....later take "videos" from you k? Many days stress and then tonight want release....

(the conversation was partly made up for entertainment purpose)

Soon Lam San re-sticking sticker for Ah Wen.. Apparently why they put the number 8 on the lawn mover....Rooney's number? They going to fail if they put a Manchester United star on the lawn mover...Their lecturer is a die hard Liverpool fan...

The star for this picture? My legs la of coz.....My roommate(in black) fixing the sticker on his prototypeCamwhore alert..I put this up since miss U-ki dying to be inside the picture

Miss U-ki getting turn on by the ass of the black human portrait...sorry for the blurry photos.....
Another shot on Xian trying to fix his thing....hahahahahaha
Wen(in red)...actually the human portrait the left is damn fucking hilarious...hahahaha
Beetle: I'm the grass-eating, camwhoring, dirt-resisting beetle...Look what look? never see lawn mover so handsome before ah??? Want me cut off your hair ah???

After their assesment, they had to test out their prototypes...If they can cut grass, they pass, if they can't, they fail.....Here are the pictures.....

Phong and Xian examining the grass they cut....
Heng check on Wen's Rooney Yunda Mover...Apparently the blade was set up higher than it is supposed to.....

Wen: Jialat liao la.....Kp no tall grass for my mover to eat.....cannot cut then fail how....
These Pictures were taken a few days before they ned to test out their machines.....Now for the actual test.....

The grass condition....
Azahari: Better test first...Make sure...All systems go...Lock and Load
Lynn: Where's my group member???? I am only the model for the mover not the Kuli that push it

The day is hot and the grass is green...Kolej Perdana's Arked backyard

Our King's prototype is running wild and naked...
Camwhore Beetle is in the dock....
The two machines raring to go.....

Che Mat(left) : Cannot cut also...Handle like not ergonomic also
Azahari: Eh...Sedap la Che Mat....Use whole day also not tired
Che Mat: Then later u help me mow the whole kolej..Ok? If not then fail
Azahari:..............( CB *&@!^*#^#*!@*!#.....saja nak cari orang buat kerja free)
Che Mat: Wah...costume also ready ah? good presentation...Later come my office to fill in the recruitment form for gardener...

Che Mat: EH, why nombor rooney....Why not Torres or Gerrard? Saja nak fail?

Soon's noob post of walking
My roommate and his camwhoring beetle in action...
Che Mat: Cut like never cut only....If use your mower need how long to finish mow my lawn?
Heng: ......(*&@*$#.....help you cut also good already la......bising only)
Soon: (must maintain pro-ness look and lan yau yeng pose...cannot lose face in front of che mat and junior)

Phong out with his Volkswagon Beetle concept Lawn Mower...Ironically his lawn mower had the label EVOLUTION...Is it an integration of Mitsubishi Lancer Evo and Beetle????
The grass catcher broke in the middle of the test run...I guess over-eating of grass can brings a dire effect.....who says vegetarian leads a healthy lifestyle???? This is further proof of why ppl should eat meat too....The effect is the same...you will die anyway
The ass-less Mower...

Might be the best pictures i took that day with grass flying around to show that it actually cuts...haha..Che Mat: (where do i still need them to mow...hard to get free labour nowadays)


I like the shot of the mechanim....
Haji helping our very own Big Sister with her Mower since her kuli-kulis haven't reach yet...
Finall, Big sister's underling made it in time to push the mower...Che Ros apparently pushed it until the handle broke...and he don't even realise that it broke until we notify him...

Probably discussion of how to convince che mat to pay them to mow the lawn....
The ever handy GUM BABI!!!! Actually the name for the gum is 3 Seconds Glue or 502 Glue...Wanna know we call it that way? It's a teaching from our seniors. Once we had even a bit of the glue which happens most of the time for me...we will end up with spitting the word.."BABI" here are the other variations

1. Oh....FUCK (i used this the most which i should call it FUCK GUM)
2. Oh...CB.....(i heard this a few times from other ppl)
3.PUKI!!!!!!!( i laughed my ass off when i heard this..this is from one of my junior, MC and they are now coming out with proposal to name the gum, GUM PUKI)

Sorry for the Vulgarities because that is actually what we felt when we get some on our hands...those shits not only stick and hardens on your hand at Godlike speed of 3 secs but it will make your skin feels like a bloody sand paper...worse, it is damn bloody hard to wash off and if you tried to wipe it off with paper or tissue before it hardens, you will get those stuck on you in the end.....

Our King in action...cleaning the blade....
A closer look at the lean-mean-grass eating-machine...
Che mat testing out the King's prototype and eventually he like it...
Soon getting a hands on the King's prototype...

That's all for this post, the next post will be on the 3SRI project which will no doubt make your jaw drops...Let me tell u what's their project....Autogyro and Prehistoric Animal Mechanical Sculpture....thanks for spending time on this long post......Please comment on our projects even if it's good or bad....

Conclusion, another nice posting eric!! good job and wait for ur next update~~
