Day 35: BatteryKart

Yesterday, we finished the battery cart. It looks pretty sick. (Click the photos to enlarge.) There are 2 columns of 6 racks to hold the batteries in the front, while the 4 chargers are mounted vertically on the back. The batteries rest on pieces of pool noodles.  Though the cart weighs a ton when fully loaded, it is a big upgrade from our previous wooden battery cart that we pulled with a string.
Meanwhile, Loki's chassis is going nicely. We are continuing to carefully make measurements, drill holes, and all that jazz on its frame. We have blue tape all over the chassis for when we drill holes and make these measurements. We had driver practice today. All the field components are finished.
