Well, UCD got 4th place overall.  Pretty much a total surprise and a bummer.  We thought we had secured 2nd place, but BYU pulled ahead and won the endurance event and knocked us back significantly.  Overall we were one of only 4 teams out of the 24 teams to compete at FH to finish endurance.  Once again UCD has proven itself as one of the best teams in the country and we are proud of that.  We are continuing to take our feedback from the judges this year in order to form next year's design.  This year's tech inspection was ridiculously difficult and next year's team will highly consider their design's in such a way that ensures a smooth tech inspection, which seems unfortunate in terms of design, but has turned out to be highly critical to achieve completion of all dynamic event in a timely manner.  New pictures should follow shortly so stay tuned.  We are off to Indianapolis and will compete in Autocross events there and plan to push our hybrid system to total failure to understand its full capabilities.  This should be quite fun!!

Hats off to your presence of mind. How amazingly you noticed the micro changes and wrote them in broader way.
