Testing today - no traction
Rudder system and steering system with gyro stabilization.
My friend Sunny and I went out to Houston Motorsport park (1/8 mile course)to do some high speed testing. It was a disappointing day. There wasn't any traction to be found on the drag track. When you watch the videos you can hear the wheels just spinning and not getting traction. A new location needs to be found for further testing. My car gets much more traction on regular asphalt or concrete. These new tires are a much harder compound than the soft drag foams I was using.
