    Cool!

    Impressive cloud front. Any crazy rain from it?

    What failed / had to be tended on the bar?

    These were the hills I was posted up by to signal for fuel. After about 10 laps no one could make it over so all of the volunteers had to move over to it to push all of the buggies over.



    Some random action shots


    Post race. Yes there is a driver in there.


    Final shot with the team, buggy and our trophy for placing second in the sled pull.

    I uploaded some videos to Youtube but they won't allow me to access them on my computer for whatever reason and the video sharing on the site doesn't allow for Imgur videos. I'll get this figured out hopefully sooner rather than later. So in the meantime enjoy the video of the sled pull set up before I get this figured out.

    dscowell previously posted:
    "After this we went over to Acceleration, Maneuverability and Suspension/Traction. On the way over torrential downpour came and everyone had to evacuate the area since a tornado touch down about 8 miles from us"

    Yeah it resulted in some ridiculous rain. It moved in hard and fast. We decided to ignore it and that ended up in all of us getting soaked. I looked like I jumped into a pool with all my clothes on and got out.

    With the bar we needed to add was because of a misinterpretation of the rules. In the rules it said no bent piece could be longer than 33" without a support piece meeting at a primary member. Because of how the rules are written we thought they meant no bent member could have a straight section before the bend. We ended up measuring at 35" so we just barely missed it.

    Here are some videos. Sorry about the low quality my phone doesn't take the best videos or pictures especially when zoomed in.



    Here is the suspension course. As you can see at the end how we had no turning radius but made it through everything with relative ease.



    Another video of the suspension course. The second attempt we made the corner but got stuffed on some concrete.



    Maneuverability. Taking it slow since like stated above our turning radius and handling was less than adequate.




    Last attempt at the Maneuverability course.
