Factory Acceptance Test (F.A.T.)

6 04 2008

Today we completed our FAT Simulation, and although successful, it did not go exactly as planned. Working through the night to get the car ready for it’s first dynamic test, we encountered a few problems: leaky gas tank, shifting problems, and our clutch wasn’t working. We finally had all those problems fixed by the next day at 11:00a.m. only to have part of our aluminum drive-axle shear off of the spindle (a true testament to our engine’s awesome torque). Racing around the city to find the parts we needed to install our backup steel pieces, we finally completed out first dynamic test!
