Chibi-Mikuvan: Detroit Recap and The Conclusion

Chibi-Mikuvan: Detroit Recap and The Conclusion @ equals zero.

I have the worst go-kart hangover ever. In the end, the reversing module, spare parts, and electrical system refactor didn’t happen, so I basically went down to the race with Chibi-Mikuvan in its late Wednesday condition. However, all the sciencing and preparation did pay off: Chibi-Mikuvan won 1st place in its 30-lap sprint race. The Endurance race the next day, however, saw my very much still beta-version non-refactored electrical system catch a case of the loose wires from the very bumpy track, an issue which couldn’t be diagnosed in time for the end of the race. The final ranking for Chibi-Mikuvan for the weekend was #6 out of a field of 19.

This is the best.
