  1. Hello All,

    Well as of 5:30pm tonight we have passed 5 stations with all green dots and only have 3 more to go. What is ment by a green dot is that there were no problems found and we passed with flying clolors. WAY TO GO TEAM. Tomorrow we have mechinical, Array & braking left for testing. The team has done outstanding and there will be pics from the track and team soon to follow. They were eamiled this evening and will be posted soon. Tom is a great chef, we think we might actually be the only team to gain weight on the road! For lunch today the team got home made Grilled Ham & cheese sandwitches with lemon butter rice & marinated tomato salad. And for dinner the team got seasoned center loin pork chops, tomato rizzto, pan fried carrots and home made salad. So the team is defently eating well 🙂 We also Picked Rob & Leon up from the airport so we now have our team of 12 with us.

    I will blog in the afternoon tomorrow after I find out how we did

    Thanks All,

    Be careful hanging around with Thomas or you will all end up looking like me.
    Success all around, be proud of yourselves.


  5. With your own Chef you must be the envy of all the other teams. Sounds like the quality of the Raycer is allowing you time to actually have meals. Look fwd to your next report. Hope your on the track tomorrow.

  6. The food rocks! We are going to delay qualifying so we can get more food. Actually; today our perfect record bit the dust with a yellow in mechanical. Apparently the lock nuts we used were not acceptable and the day was spent in a futile search for the elusive “Fuji Nuts” or the equally shy “Flex Lock”. Now we are waiting for an express shipment from a factory in Outer Mongolia or the Romulan sector or some equally remote location. AAAARGGHH!!!!

    Which nuts? Just drill and lockwire if the nuts are too posh.
