2014 Planning

Missed out on 2013, time to start planning for 2014.

Ideal speed to bet is 106.6 mph

TODO

  • recheck Port Timing and Articulated Exhaust dimensions (using Computer Generated Port Maps scan now attached to Port Timing page) - next time
  • Check rules around "support vehicle", do I need to tow the Vespa to the start line or do I need a second person waiting by? (small teams now have access to this in liu of volunteer time)
  • Battery needs to be secured with metal clamp (Rule 7.B.26)
  • New Battery (ordered)
  • Coolant (replace with no-gycol) - waiting on battery so I can flush the old stuff out
  • Clamp trailer ramps to stopped them rattling around

List

Print out and check off when packing.
