Default SHE PUUUUUUUURRRRRRRSSSSSS WOOO HOOO!!!!!(with pics and vid)

So as some of you may know, I have been spending the majority of my time since before NEBF wiring a Formula SAE car. and today it finally paid off....she started and idled smoother than ever. Not even a hickup or choke or small backfire while starting. (which is pretty common for these motors for what we change)

i am PUMPED. I am taking my roomies cam to the unveiling which is at 4/4:30. So I should have pictures in the next few days if not tonight.

SUCCESS FEELS SOOOOOOOOOO GOOD.

I have been up since thrus 7am so I could go to class all thrusday and work on the car until about 20 minutes ago to be ready for unveiling. Time for a shower since this is my first time back to my room since thrusday afternoon.

WOOOT WOOT

Man, I wish our school took part in the Formula SAE Comp. A few of us tried to get it started for our senior design project, but to no avail..... Best we have is the supermilage comp.

And congrats on the car completion
