Csues to improve the car's reliability,
ich were complicated by the fact that
problems aren't always easy to pinpoint
or correct, Gilchrist said.
That continued a pattern begun when
the team was building the vehicle in Ann
Arbor. "One night we were there from 4
p.m. one day until 6 p.m. the next day,"
said Engineering senior Stephen Heinz,
who worked on the electrical aspect of
e car. Heinz remembered going home
with aluminum chips in his hair.
The team was able to reach the point
where they were consistently in the lead
position in the last few days.
The team contended with high tem-
peratures as well as rough roads, tough
competition and technical problems.
"Some of the days were very hot -
well over 100 degrees;' Gilchrist said. "I
can assure you it was at least 10 degrees
hotter inside the car."
To ensure the driver's safety, the team
stayed in constant radio contact with the
driver and made sure the driver had
plenty of water.
There were two primary drivers for
the car, and two back-up drivers. The
drivers switched off at every checkpoint.
"As the race went on we figured out
ways to get more air into where the driv-
er was,"Gilchrist said.
The team is resting for now but will
begin preparing for their Australian trip
at the beginning of August. Fundraising
and refurbishing the car are necessary
steps to take to ready the team for the
Shwayhat said he expects road condi-
tions to be better in Australia. Racing on
Route 66 was difficult at times because
of traffic and bumpy roads.
"You're on the same street as all the
Ford Tauruses' he said, adding the solar
cars are small and drivers don't always
see them. The Australian course is a
straight shot of well-kept highway.
Shwayhat said expects it to be a "much
better test of what your car can do."
"What makes it difficult is the level of
competition," he added.
Last year's competition consisted of
40 to 50 teams from I1 countries and six
continents. The competition is not
restricted to universities. Companies
race their designs next to the students.
Gilchrist said the team is still in high
spirits and is optimistic about their
chances for a good finish.
"The team is quite motivated to take
their solar car and compete at the inter-
national level," he said. "As a faculty
advisor, I am quite proud of what the
team has accomplished ... and quite
