The team assessed the damage this morning. The front suspension failed by buckling. We had to remake many of the components before weigh in at 12:30. There were also some electrical failure due to loose connections. After several hours of refining the program we made it with 3 minutes to spare. We passed at 896 pounds and scrambled to meet tech inspection at 1:30. Unfortunately, the control system wasn’t up and running efficiently till later in the afternoon. However, we passed 2.5 of the inspection stations. Many of the problems were fixed in the evening in anticipation for the second tech inspection at 8 am. We even had time to get some extra pull data and help out the new McGill team. Tomorrow, a lot of work is needed to prepare ourselves for design judging, and finishing technical inspection.
