Rob, what building are you in? We are in building 9.

I think we are all together. Maybe LSR guys under one roof?

There is a good chance that everyone is under the same roof.

It's a huge building.

Fantastic pictures of the car.
  Having seen the Carbonliner in person at Wilmington I was blown away by the detail and quality of the car. I'm sure this will be one of the crowd favorites on display in Pomona.  cheers

Thanks for the kind words Ronnie!
Last Thursday we took the car to Mars High school where I did six 20 min power point presentations for the physics and tech students.
It was great fun and the kids seem to enjoy it. Here  is the Facebook link to see more.

Don't think you need to have a Facebook account to see.

Rob...Good for you. I have helped the local High School with their Senior Class Project, so I know what an Impression you must have made. I will say, though, that I am a bit worried about the Staff Member in the Red Shirt.....I wouln`t tell him where you keep the car..... grin cheers

Good on ya Rob!
By the smiles on all the faces, I'd say the kids enjoyed it and hopefully they learned something as well.
I'm with Kiwi Paul about the one in the red shirt.....LOL!  grin

As a side question, you guys going bring the Carbiliner back to Wilmington next year?

Rob,
That is an experience that these kids will never forget. Who knows what kind of
spark that it will ignite.
They sure didn't have any presentations like that when I went to Mars High School.
I seem to remember that we had to provide our own learning experience near the high
school on Rt. 228.
Times sure do change.

Gregg,
It would be great to take the car back to Wilmington again next summer for purpose of getting Brandon a chance to drive the car before we get to Speedweek.

Rob I've  been enjoying all of the pictures on your site....

http://www.carbinitelsr.com/

..thanks for taking the time to do that.

I had a question about your chutes and how they are deployed.



Are you running a total of 2 or 3 (maybe 2 in the larger box?)?  I assume they attach where the arrow is pointing.  Do you have any pictures that you would share of the finished boxes and how you are handling the doors and deployment of the chutes themselves?

I think I'm going to abandon what I have already made ...

.....and I'm looking for alternatives.  Thanks,

Sum,
We plan on using two chutes. The primary chute is in the back behind the rear end. The secondary chute is in front of the rear end.
You are correct about the location of the tether point. The tethers exit the body through the primary chute door opening. This mean that if I accidentally deploy secondary chute first it will smash the primary door.
The secondary door is shaped like fly swatter.
The handle of the fly swatter is what let's the riser come through the body work between the two boxes. I can make you a video of how this works if the weather warms s bit. Right now the car is under 6" of snow.




I studied your design for a bit . Why would you want to change what you have. It looks pretty good to me. Are you contend about the drogue chutes clearing the doors?
