When doing a trail day with Corridor Crawlers, we will have tech inspections prior to hitting the trails. Make sure you go over this checklist yourself before attending the event. This will make everything easier for those doing tech inspection and ensure you don’t get turned away for something that cannot be fixed in the field.
Please let a tech inspector know of any known issues before the inspection. One bad mark on inspection may not necessarily get you failed for club tech but will be noted and will be at the parks discretion.
