shinya added the extra oil tank. since the indian has total-loss oiling system, it drinks up 4-5 bottles of oil per day and carrying those bottles were too bulky. 予備のオイルタンクを追加中。トータル・ロスというオイルシステムなため、1日走るとオイル4、5本を平らげるインディアン。かさばるボトルを積んで走るより、こっちの方が便利。
our friend S-san, who had been preparing the mazda miata land speed racer nearly a year for his first time speedweek challenge, came back from bonneville. he got there early to finish up a whole list of final this and that on miata on-site. was super disappointed that the race was cancelled just as ourselves and all fellow racers and crews from all over the globe. anyway, he swang by just to say hi and gave us his team t-shirts.
even if the speedweek was cancelled we needed to test our new van before the cannonball so we decided to have a small road trip to red rock canyon in nevada. hauled two yamahas. see the heavy rain cloud but it's alright.
in las vegas :) the van became a bit noisy and shinya had to replace some expendable parts but that was it! now the 3rd gen. chabott van was finally approved as our official cannonball support van. yay!
