I went to our beloved college last weekend to have a meeting with a number of present boys regarding their F1 In School Competition. From that 2 hours session and first time meeting them, in general i think the boys need a lot of help especially with budget and technical matters. I can assists them in terms of the technical matters (and i do encourage anybody who wants to chip in and contribute to contact me, i.e. the likes of MTOP, FAZ, CHAMP and those automotive engineers out there, do we have aircraft/ aerospace engineers in our batch? Academicians can also contribute) but for budget, we need to work something out to assists these boys. In terms of target, since in last year's competition, everything was done in a hurry therefore the result was not that good. For this year's target, i think they should at least be the first in zon tgh which comprise of schools from Perak, Selangor and WP (and this includes last year's champion for zon tgh and national level, Sekolah Alam Shah (SAS)). Come on guys, MCKK losing to SAS is like being Gadap but without the K**EK part. Badly need to improve on this. The two important factors that i've seen will contribute to success is technical capability and budget (just like the real F1 competition, those with bigger budget can actually invest more on the technical capability and build better car and team, e.g. Ferrari, McLaren Mercedes and BMW Sauber)
According to the competition regulation, the F1 in school team (there's two teams this year) has to look for budget themselves. Last year they have the likes of MISC (RM5000) and other small organisations contributing to their budget. This year, the boys have to start all over again and source for budget. I would want to invite you guys who have been very sucessfull in your life to contribute either through your own company or 9094 F1 Fund. Whoever is interested to do this, please inform me either through this mailing list or @ 019-2214922. Kalau nak sponsor through company, please provide the contact no for the PIC in your respective companies, fax number, the company name and company address. The boys will contact them officially.
What's in it for you guys? Well, on top of contributing back to MCKK (sebagai membalas jasa2), you can gain marketing advantages by having your company logo on the official F1 team suit/uniform. If the boys win this year, we will have bragging rights for the years to come he he he. Ok then, adios. Hope to hear good news soon.
Thanks for reading.
Count me in untuk macai.Aku rasa Faz pun boleh tolong.
What is F1 In School competition?
Ini macam Peraduan Rekacipta Sains ke dulu?
Please have a look here....sorry champ last year was RMC, runner-up SAS,koleq kat mana????
Red has already spoken to me about the sponsorship.
So I will try to help him get the first RM2k first to get things started, then we'll start with looking for the RM10k needed for the teams.
Thanks anyway for agreeing to do this - as you can see, the boys are not bad. They are as energetic etc. it's just that they don't have help.
ok, takdak hal punya. Aku pun kesian gak, kalau aku jadi diaorg, agaklah lost. Apsal mel kau ni mcm agak formal gitu?
Satu lagi Projek Kewl 9094 ..cayalah hehehe
Syam,if this project ada involve trip to halfcut shops, aku nak join and sedia membantu.. hehehe
Rough,Bile nak balik Kemaman? boleh karaoke kat Pusat Karaoke Epal.. smlm baru perasan kat ofis ada budak2 8690-9094-9498 hehehe..blom tanya manager aku lagi die batch mana, kalau 8286 baru chun (bukan Shamsul Akmal Muzeni)
kau ada simpan tak last year punya design ? kalu ada, pass kat aku file cad/cam.
wajib pakai solid edge kan ?
Not necessarily, they will get extra mark for efforts to model using other CAD packages such CATIA and PROE. Design semua ada kat budak2 tu. If you want i can help to request from them. What is it for man?
Syam,aku dgn Faz on...nanti aku try tanya2 sponsor from Pennzoil dgn Toyota
pasal Catia, need any help ker?
Kalu ok, aku leh sumbangkan perkhidmatan 3D rendering utk presentation. Nak tau file dia compatible tak ngan autodesk.
Tapi kena tunggu pc baru sampai. pc aku tgh hidup segan mati tak mahu.
Good one bro. Thanks. Aku akan discuss benda ni dgn budak2 tu.
Aku rasa elok kita pakai design tahun ni punya (which currently not even started yet). Hopefully boleh dapat by end of april. Berapa lama lead time utk kau buat rendering tu?
tak tau. selalunya 2-3 minggu. tgk pada byk mana kena edit, polygon count,lighting,color,motion etc. sbb tu aku nak mintak design yg dah ada last year, nak tgk payah mana.
aku jarang sekali render mech.motion. yg simple2 guna IK (inverse kinematic) adalah sket, jadi aku kena membaca dulu.
Baguih! the more the merrier. Thanks MTOP and Faz, curently aku rasa diaorg tgh bingung mcm mana nak reduce drag coefficient for their design, maybe if we have some ideas to give them options when designing that will be excellent. For CFD analysis, i think i can arrange from my side.
Anyway i'm planning to go again to kuala somewhere next month to check on the progress on their side and offer some technical assistance. The date kalau sama ngan mighty ducks training bagus jugak sbb boleh carpool. Camna chibix, bila mighty ducks lagi? Mtop ndan Faz nak join gak tak?
Pennzoil and Toyota are good brands to be our sponsors. Mmg cantek sgt.
migducks every 2 weekends... next trip 21-22/2.. badut and kno ada time tu
kau nak buat rendering, file tu kena save dalam format apa? kalau kena
format dia, aku rasa sng sikit kerja kau.
3DS, AI, DDF, DEM, DWG, DXF, HTR, IAM, IGES, IPT, LP, LS, MTL, OBJ, PRJ,SHP, STL, TRC, VW, WRL, WRZ
bagi aku salah satu dari atas, preferably 3ds,dwg, dxf
sambil tu bagi skali file asal dia, solidedge/works/catia
aku naktry cari transpoly importer, katanya dia boleh tolong importkan file2 native catia4-5, solidedge etc kpd 3ds max.
Preferebly dlm IGES la...
ha ah ok gak. tapi kadang2 iges bila import dia jadi tak symmetrical.
pastu bila import aku kena kerja dgn nurbs, tak berapa pandai jadi.
include ah skali.
alrite, sila buat spin-off group for F1 ala migducks ya
you can discuss nurbs, iges, xyz there :P
Ha ha I hope they will find as much fulfillment as some of us had with MightyDucks and the debaters. Money is always daunting, but we manage to stay afloat so far despite all the shouting.
I wish some senior teachers from MCKK remember Syam, Faz, Awie, Bobo and Mattop. They were not the model students that would have survived MCKK's expectation today (but they did get Anugerah Pingat Emas though, he he). None of us would have survived MCKK today - we were too non-conforming, too lazy to study and too independent-minded.
Syam can fill in himself berapa kali kena tampar dengan warden.
I remember one day in 1992 when Faz's parents had to come because either the school wanted him to leave the school or he was caught doing something, but the parents had to sit down with the HM.
Awie (although less notorious with the teachers he he) was not the conforming type either. So was Bobo.
Apart from Mattop, I am sure all began to smoke from F3 (or even earlier ha ha) and must have ran into some kind of troubles later on.
But the teachers were gentle with us. I think they saw us as boys and to a certain extent tolerated us.
In the process, we got 2 things from the school:
1) the best of friends and brothers in the world, that we would find any excuse to spend time with
2) the sense of belonging and indebtedness for the school that defies the time and age; for giving us the experience and youth that we treasure so much
It's this 2 things that keep making people going back.
It's this 2 things that partly define MCKK's experience all this while.
It's this 2 things that we must continue to provide to MCKK and the present boys, if we were to make sure people after us continue to return to the school.
Good luck to Geng Keter Potong!
1) Despite all the problems, Faz went on to get 8A1s in SRP - one of 13 who scored 8A1s (the highest result) in MCKK that year
2) Syam was always in the top 30 of the batch despite whatever he ventured, getting JPA/MARA overseas scholarship after SPM
3) Mattop went to Japan after SPM, which contributed to his rather infamous "join(t)"-'s English proficiency (ha ha)
4) Bobo obtained PETRONAS' scholarship to the UK after SPM, despite all the mess he created and hearts he broke (ha ha Aiwa punya je..)
5) Awie went on to pursue his passion for crazy arts, started out with his own animation company but was chased to go back to Terengganu to work for his dad's construction business (ha ha)
6) Morale of the story: do not see the boys for what they are now for they are only boys - see them for what they can become one day :-)
