Refuel update

REFUEL was both an amazing, and challenging day. We started out pretty rough with the liquid cooling system getting stuck on and over flowing onto the back tire, causing us to crash. The rest of the day went better. We switched to the backup cooling system, which also failed, and then resorted to disabling it completely, and limiting the power to keep the motor alive. Because of our limited battery capacity, we were only able to do two to three laps of the track, so we had to cut short our sessions. But towards the end of the day we had turned a fast enough lap to place third behind Brammos TTXGP bike, and a heavily modified zero S. Needless to say we were pretty happy with that result.
