Build Update: Learning experience

With the build progress getting close we have been waiting for a lot of parts. One of the main things is a fuel cell. Man, we made a bit of a mistake with that from the get go. Thinking we had it all under control we ordered a fuel cell. After fabricating the mount, cutting […]

Super Bowl 47

Super Bowl 47

With the Super Bowl coming up we could only think of one thing. Wiring. Yeah, random, I know. We all enjoy a good football game, but we have a lot to do so why not have a nice quiet day at the shop and be productive? We couldn’t think of any good reason so that […]

The Lull.

The Lull.

Yup, that’s right, there was a lull. What is that? Well, we have been working hard at getting this car going but we have been slackin’ on keeping our site up to date. September 13th was the last update?! What is that, who is responsible here… Clearly It is me and I am slacking. Sorry […]

Paint? Parts? What’s going on around here!?

Paint? Parts? What’s going on around here!?

During the moments of insanity when things were looking bleak then suddenly we got the Dingo’s car back on the road. One of our team members stayed behind. Wow, how lonely… But he is a productive guy and at one moment just as we received news that we may not be able to go forward […]

Pushing on, With an Engine!

Pushing on, With an Engine!

Our build has been a bit tough to define recently. One of the things we learned is that we should have really started ordering parts earlier. We assumed that we would be able to just buy those parts as we needed them and unfortunately it has been a bit more challenging than that! So what […]

The final push… why is it so hard!

The final push… why is it so hard!

It only took two cyclists to create modern aviation, you’d think that 4 of us would be able to build a car a bit quicker right? We have a ton to do, but of course, in the laws of nature and the ways of the world everything else seems to be happening at the same […]

When summer rolls around we are all busy. Add on all the other things that ramp up to our build and we are a bunch of bleary eyed guys running around trying to fix everything. However with that being said, we are making progress, and lots of it! With the main portion of our cage […]

Cage Build Take Two

Cage Build Take Two

There are few things more disappointing than having to redo something that you thought you had already finished. We are fairly used to it on smaller scale items however. When we do something we often will go through several ideas before we discover the best idea to make the best solution to whatever problem we […]

HURRY UP! now wait

HURRY UP! now wait

The magical mystery of building just about anything is the urgency that needs to happen at times that is often dashed by late parts or no parts at all. We have been twiddling our thumbs recently waiting for some new parts to arrive and we can not wait to get them! In the mean time […]

Measure twice, cut… 10 or 11 times

Measure twice, cut… 10 or 11 times

With the fabrication of the main hoop we were able to start working on the rest of the cage. This is an absolute art and anyone that tells you different hasn’t ever tried to do all of this. We are fortunate to have “bones” himself and Tyler “the cage whisperer” providing their help and expertise […]
