Dartmouth has passed mechanical inspection and will be finishing up electrical in a few minutes. One of the parts of the mechanical inspection is the egress test, in which the driver must exit the car within 5 seconds.

Lawrence Tech became the second team to pass the tilt test and will be heading out to the acceleration event soon.
