Busy weekend inside and outside the hangar. Jason, Ani, Les and Keith put the final touches on the race car transporter power generation system. Generator, air compressors and tanks were all mounted. We still need to plumb everything and install the fuel tank .so a lot left to complete.
Ed, Von, Ani, Steve Rima and Steve Wallace worked on electrical systems in preparation for an upcoming engine test. Big improvements with communications and engine start up. We can’t wait to try it out!
Chris and Brandyn got the computer workstation put together. Sam Yellowbird stopped by to see how things are doing while he recovers from knee surgery. He’ll be back in the thick of things in a few months.
