Thanks to all who came out! It was a great weekend to be out at NCAT. What all did everyone break?

Here's some of my photos from the weekend. If you want any in high res, or want to use them for your team webpage, just shoot me a PM.

Off the top of my head:
- 2 tie rods
- 3 trashed A-arms
- 1 push pull cable
- 1 clutch cable
- 1 ball joint
- 1 steering rack housing
- 1 mysterious ignition problem
- 1 transmission seal
- several chain guards
- and 1 frame

Not too bad for 5 cars I suppose.

I love how G-Techs rear frame and suspension are integrated. I asked before but does anyone have any good shots of the rear end area of the car?

And I heard Old Greggy poo here smashed the frame, lol is that true?  i also heard we are a bunch of tree lovers and want to do nothing but wrap ourselves around them...

My next question is how many people flipped?  I know I did last year, in the same place, twice

#5

I bent the lower right A-Arm on a tree, drivable, but a definite fix for when we get back. Old Greg goes out and decides to even the other side on another tree, and over did it. Both Left A-arms bent fairly bad.  Then we lifted the seat up and the bottom 0.5" cross tubes all but fell out of the bottom.

Dan was the only one to flip, once at your corner, once im not sure where.  I did roll up on Georgia Tech on his side at the bottom of your corner, and helped flip him back up.
