Home of Wasabi Air Racing

Elliot Seguin and Jenn Whaley's Formula One class air race team based out of Mojave, California. Pylon racing at the National Championship Air Races in Reno Nevada. Eight airplanes racing head to head around telephone poles in the desert. Mojave is the best place on the planet to build and modify a race plane, and Wasabi is lucky to have the best support in the business.

Relief tube in a pylon racer.

I am not sure having a relief tube in a pylon racer is something to be proud of, but we have one either way.

We spent the weekend on some of the million details that will determine whether or not our little racer makes the trip non-stop to the show.

  • Installed and tested our MGL Fuel Flow Meter
  • Installed the warning system for our alternator
  • Installed and tested our pilot relief system
  • Took the oxygen bottle to be hydro'd

We also found a problem with the gasket sealant we used to seal our long range tanks which required removing and re-installing the entire system.  Luckily Jennifer doesn't mind getting her tiny hands (the only hands that fit down in the tank) covered in gasket sealant.

More to come!
