    We just spent 8 nights in the hauler. 2 were in transit and 6 were on site. Everything performed really well. We have a few things to add for comfort, but it was soooooo nice to stay on site with ac AND be able to take hot showers. 2700 miles this trip!

    We picked up a 120V mini fridge, so that was great to have. I'd like to mount it more permanently so I don't have to strap it down for transportation.

    We need a fold down table of some sort. We took a small table, but it was very in the way for transport.

    I'm going to hang etrack along the walls so we can strap stuff up. The bikes need a better way to be transported, as well.

    More cabinets are going to be a winter project. Having totes for everything isn't terribly convenient.

    The battery needs a permanent home. I'm planning to build an in floor box.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Nah, but we did get a smaller car for it :)

    Wasn't planning on it for the engine. The rules severely limit the engine build stuff, so it's pretty boring. There's some other stuff that I'm planning that will be far more interesting. With a backup car, I should have a lot more time to work on the 6 and actually document stuff.

    The new car will likely get a "build thread" of some sort. I've wanted a project so I can play with additional telemetry, and I think that would be relevant to most everyone interested in turning. Which, in turn, should play into general suspension data-driven setup stuff :)
