Darwin: Day 8 and Day 9

Hey all,

This will be a very short post! The internet cafe closes in 10 minutes, sorry!

Ok so here is the deal! We have all been very busy this last few days now that most of the team has arrived. It's been great getting things on the go. We've regularly tested at the race track. It was quite fun driving at up to 70kph on only half throttle acceleration. Tomorrow we'll step it up some more in preparations for scrutineering on Thursday.

So that's all for now. I'll try to get back on here tomorrow night for a more detailed explanation of what's been going on!
Thanks for all your comments! Please keep on writing! The team enjoys your comments and appreciates all of your support! Knowing that people care about what we're doing here means a lot to us.

Hey guys!

Mike Manz (Immy's friend) here. Just wanted to say that i check the site often and am impressed with everything I've seen here! Keep up the good work!

Immy: I _LOVE_ the drill press picture. If only Mr. Brown could see that thing still working - and in Oz, he'd freak!

Anyways, that's it from me... Take care all, and best of luck!

This is Rob (the Mini Baja guy from Western). Imran, I've chatted with you on MSN, so I've already wished you good luck, but good luck to everyone else. In case you guys don't get a chance to check cbc.ca before they change it, I've posted the pic and story at [http://minibaja.eng.uwo.ca/~rjelenic/sunstang]

Keep up the awesome work guys.
