So in the end, we didn’t win.
We did avoid hitting other vehicles, or crashing into a hay bale, or crashing into somebody (like a race volunteer), unlike a few other vehicles I could mention.
And we looked good…
Turns out my near-death power slide on Nimrod during a test run caused the rear axle frame to bend, leading to toe-out (or toe-in? I can never remember).
So we were scrubbing off wheel rubber the whole way down – which was…disappointing.
But we’re ready for next year’s race, this time with a properly aligned frame…
When I worked with cars a little off-camber was considered good for stability, and it actually helped a lot, but there was a reason it had to be just a little bit, I just can’t seem to remember why. But I do see Mercedes and Saabs have noticeable off-camber.
Good luck next year!
