Here's the promo video from our recruiting event for this school year, with footage from testing at the Cliffs and from driving at Maryland Comp in May 2015. Thanks for sorting through all those hours of GoPro videos, Drew!
Another school year is almost upon us. Those bright-eyed freshmen destined to become our beloved motorkittens are getting packed and ready for Wildcat Welcome, unaware of the wondrously muddy future they have ahead of them.
As a reminder of the full mud potential that can be achieved, here's a look back at our recruitment video from last year:
It's official, many of our motorkittens became fully mudded motorcats today at the Cliffs :'D
We took Knuckles and Spot out to Cliff's Insane Terrain over in Marseilles, IL and had a riot of a time. Both cars ran great! Knuckles is vastly superior to Spot in control and maneuverability, but Spot still has a bit of thunder left in him. Well, he did until Faye here rolled him over onto his side.
Knuckles had great speed for a while, but after an hour or two of heavy driving, he lost his power. We think it’s something in the gearbox. Perhaps a shaft broke, but we’ll have to get back to the shop and take it all apart. John’s worried he may have to redesign and manufacture the whole thing in fewer than two weeks. We shall see.
