Colder Products Company is a sponsor of the fifth annual Society of Automotive Engineers Clean Snowmobile Challenge (CSC) that took place in March at Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Michigan. This intercollegiate design competition, which draws teams from the U.S. and Canada, challenges engineering students to design a snowmobile with noise and emissions that beat those of existing snowmobiles. Colder Products serves as the official supplier of the quick disconnect couplings used to hook up the snowmobiles to cooling, emissions and engine output test cells. For more information and results from the SAE CSC 2004, go to www.sae.org/students/snow.htm.
