The idle period is over....

greetings race fans. This is your captain speaking. I was on vacation for the last week and didn't get much Numerator stuff done. Oddly enough we passed through Providence on our East Coast Journey. I saw the hotel that the team will be staying at in Providence. It looked pretty cool from the road at 70 mph.

Design Update:
-SolidWorks 3D model of the body shell has been completed. Frame design will be finished this week.

Construction Update:
-Body shell fiberglass mold work will begin today. Perhaps fiberglass layup this weekend. Bring your respirator!!
-Frame components will begin their transformation in the machine shop this week also.

Theme Song:
-Mark has been working on THE NUMERATOR theme song for our intro. It is in it's final stages

Battery Update:
-They are on the charger

~The Numerator is always on top.

The Concept: 2.0

The Cyclepathz

We got word today that some of our competition from St Louis will be attending the Seattle Race. The Cyclepathz brought Jack in the Box to Forest Park in 2006. They will be racing their new craft, The Lincoln Log, in Seattle. Check out their blog.

We also found out about another Soap Box race in Colorado. The Cyclepathz raced Jack this year. Check out the video of their crash.

Just remember folks, The Numerator is also on top.
