A few missing things

Back to normal!? After the speed show we have had a bit of a hiatus while we got back to more mundane things like sorting out paper work and catching up on sleep.

The passing of time also helps to address things you are waiting on. At the speed show, we were still waiting on the completion of a few key components. The good news is that our half shafts have been completed and Bruce has sent them up from Bunnythorpe.

The bad news is that we are still waiting on the completion of the inverter software required to drive the car. It appears that the software engineering has been more time consuming than expected (who forgot to double the estimate?), but it shouldn't be too far away now. The first cut is expected in late November.

In the meantime we have been working on our proposal for potential major sponsors. As a direct result of the Speed Show, we have already been approached by one likely candidate (they were on our list of potential sponsors). We believe the marketing opportunities are immense and we hope to expand the imagination and reality of both the public and corporate partners with what we have to offer.

Stay tuned as we knock off the remaining tasks in preparation for the track.
