In April the Dragon Motorsports team re-aligned the front wheels and steering after the Lincoln Rally. The team has also put the new braking system in the car, added cones around the axles to reduce drag, and tested batteries to find the strongest out of the group. After the Lincoln rally the A-59 had to have its right front tire replaced because of a problem with the alignment between the steering and how the wheel was towed in, which caused the right front tire to rub along the track, causing our batteries to drain faster and nearly causing a blowout.
After the Hastings Rally the team has added cones to go around the axles to reduce drag and improve the car’s aerodynamics. The Dragon Motorsports team has also started practicing for the braking and maneuverability competitions, and after a quick fix on the braking system, will be ready for state.
