an early wake up.
Here's our car in the work area (we built the crate to ship
it in too, which isn't pictured here).
There were about 120 cars total, and it was amazing to
see all the different designs.
And from another angle.
Here's all of the team that went to Houston (we're missing
two members), plus Mike's cousin on the far left.
We also saw Rowan from the plane on the way back.
Our top fuel economy was 420 mpg. This is almost
double what we got last year, and we were really
happy about it. We hope to do even better for
Supermileage in June.
I'd like to give a word of warning to any teams reading
this: don't buy the Ecotrons Small Engine EFI Kit. It
worked at first, but stopped working correctly (we couldn't
get the engine started, and when we did it didn't run right).
Other teams at competition who had tried it all shared
The Eco-marathon was very well-run, and we were
impressed with just about every aspect of it. Even
though we spent a lot of time working on the car,
we still had an awesome time.
