Day Five – Delta, UT to Carson City, NV

Working on Stealth - Stephen, Michael, Jesse, and Jay

Up at 5:00 A.M., Jay and Jesse spent 4 1/2 hours working on the car!  Vicki found out that Delta, UT is one of only 2 places in the world where people come to dig for certain minerals!  Very interesting!  After changing out the 2 melted batteries, changing the transmission back to the original CVT with two hydro-electric clutches, we were finally off!  Highway 50 from Delta, UT to Carson City, NV is called the loneliest road in America!  Stealth’s electric motor acted up this time  – ahhh, the life of a prototype!  We enjoyed vast and diverse landscapes, old mining towns, and lots of “old west” looking places.  We arrived in Carson City, met the guys at the designated coffee shop and visited for a while, before going to the hotel, completely disassembling the Stealth, cleaning the motors, taking all batteries off – only to find a loose electric throttle wire!  Michael and Stephen to the rescue – again!

    Sorry I didn’t get this on the road. Others were handling these responses for me as we battled the road every day. Jay
