Episode 11- Test Day (Part 2)

We did it!

Ok, they did it. At 2 pm today we gathered a small audience and started up the car and took a few drivers around the lot! I will be posting the video this afternoon.

Congratulations to Chester and the CravenSpeed Tech Team! Now get back to work, just because it runs doesn't mean it's done.

A little Insecure

The motor has been mounted or at least mated. The adapter plate is allowing everything to line up well between the transmission and the motor. That is all superficial, we still have to work on the flywheel before they are truly mated together.

As you can see we still need the crane in the shot to keep the motor level, but not for long. Tristan and Chester have devised some motor mounts that will make sure that the Warp nine is a secure in that engine bay as a baby in the womb.

Cambridge Machine will be cutting one out for us soon, and I will get you an update when that happens.
