Damn that looks like a ton of fun. Too bad I never went to a college large enough to have something like that. Though one school I went to was for ASE, we did nothing interesting like this.

UPDATE 5-09-09

Got to run the car through it's paces today, and learned a lot.

The car made a weird noise when turning right, but that was found to be the right fan rubbing on the radiator, and the car understeared like a freight train. The rear springs were swapped out tonight though, and some other changes made to try and get the front to bite better. Also the diffuser should be mounted tomorrow, so we will see how much that helps us.

Anyways, on to the pictures.

When we got to the parking lot for testing there was a pesky car parked in the way. We were going to use it as the apex point for turn one but the Baja guys had other plans.

Messing with my flash, it wasn't dark out but the flash made it look like it.

That is all for today, but more to come tomorrow after testing, then we pack up, get a little sleep, and leave for Michigan.

got a call last night from the FSAE advisor at uconn ( i am in no way involved in FSAE)

He is my best friends uncle, so he somehow found my #.

He called to beg to borrow a megasquirt because the idiots got their new motor thinking the old one was bad, and realized that they fried the microsquirt.

I gave him the # of my friend chris who is the one that designed the LCdash on DIYs site.

SO GLAD I AM NOT INVOLVED. They are never gunna make it.
