The combustion team also had a great week in Lincoln. Because we received a high rules quiz score, we were 12th highest in priority out of 80 combustion teams to go to tech inspection.
Had it not been for issues in the closing laps of the endurance event, the team was on track for a top 25 finish out of the 80 teams that entered. Still, we are proud of our team’s ability to overcome numerous obstacles in the past two years to show out and compete our hardest at competition this year. We’re grateful to our supporters that made this possible
This was a great year for our team. For the first time ever, we passed all of technical inspection and were one of only three teams to complete in all dynamic events. We were just short of being design finalists, placing 4th. Overall, we placed 7th out of 30 teams.
The solar team made impressive progress over break. They made substantial headway in finalizing the suspension, and are working hard to finishing the roll cage and array designs. Electronically, they're busy on programming the battery protection system, and will be focusing on the designs for the motor control system and dashboard interface at the beginning of this semester. Over break, they also took time to make the garage a safer area by organizing it and stocked up on protective gear.
