Welcome to Day 2 (Sent on Day 3)! A bit of late update; day 2 has been quite hectic and all hands were on deck setting up our trailer and making last minute adjustments on the car. With this, we were unable to get yesterdays update out on time so this early morning update will have to do.
Michigan 2017 is the first year that the team has integrated Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) and is 1 of only 9 teams to do so out of the 128 teams in attendance. This is a new addition to the rule book and thus the team had to jump through several challenges to ensure that compliance was maintained. We are proud to announce that we are officially the first team to make it through ETC inspection and passed with flying colours.
Additionally, the team also passed our safety inspection which means that all of the helmets, race suits, and supporting safety equipment is all ready to go.
The team also went through its first round of technical inspection, and though a few things held the OG17 from passing that round, we are expecting to breeze through Day 2.
Today is largely about presentations; our Design, Cost, and Business justifications will be presented to a panel of judges and evaluated. These have a significant impact on our overall score and have been a subject of focus for the leads.
