SEMA 2016 17 Hour Update

Alice and the team have arrived safe and sound in Detroit! We've spent most of today fixing some small portions of the car and getting ready for technical inspection, which we need to complete before we are allowed to drive on the track. Meanwhile, our electrical team is making backup boards and debugging remaining issues with the system.
