Alrighty, well Dexter and I have continued working on the car and we are running out of time. We are behind schedule as to what we have planned from the beginning of this project. We are hoping that we can meet our goals and finish within time before race day.

So far, the car's outermost shape has been finished and we're attaching the wheels onto the car as well as the balloon. We had difficulties performing the procedure attaching the balloon due to the fact that we almost broke the back of the car in half trying to make the hole. As you can see, these are pictures of the balloon attached to the car with the wheels taken off, the driver's seat in the formula 1 car will act as a ramp so the balloon can be placed ontop of it . Initially, this is to help the balloon keep its place so it will not lose balance and fall on either side. If the balloon falls on either side, then it will start to turn. THIS IS WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO AVOID.
