Tech Inspection Passed

We officially passed all the technical inspections today after a few tries and a couple fixes.  Initial safety tech was passed first thing in the morning after spending all night addressing the Tech Spec punch list. After a few minor bolt changes and Jed quickly performing an egress test (video posted below hopefully) we received our first of three Tech Spec stickers.

Next, we were required to fuel our car and do a tilt test to ensure no fuel leakage (pictures and video below).  We passed tilt test first time with no issues.

After tilt test we completed a noise test was performed. 110dB was the limit and we exceeded it at 113dB. We adjusted our exhaust and passed with 102dB on the second try.

Brake test was completed by Adam Mangold with a bit of work. Our car was not running well at idle so after numerous attempts Adam was able to accelerate and lock up all four tires in smoking fashion! With thumbs up all around we were cleared for Dynamic Competitions.  Unfortunately, with all the delays we were unable to compete in today’s dynamic events: Skid Pad, Acceleration and Autocross.

Luckily, tomorrow we are scheduled to compete at the Endurance event! More to come! Enjoy the pictures and videos if they work below:

CAPTIONS WILL FOLLOW, I am tired! 🙂
