So we have been working feverishly on the LeMons car trying to get it suited for a shakedown day at one of the local road courses. In the past two weekends we have finished the cage, installed the larger fuel pump and regulator, mounted the seat in a way that might not get us killed or worse, installed the Hawk brake pads, removed a lot of weight, and put on the new tires.

It has seen very limited runs around the neighborhood just to get a feel for things and make sure it doesn't overheat in the first 2 minutes of the race.

We have two shakedown sessions this week. One on Friday at IMI which is a karting track outside of Denver and the other will be done at a short road course used by the stat patrol for testing purposes. After this weekend we hope to have a good field test of the car under our belts and hoepfully not blow anything up.
