Website Launch

We are proud to announce the launch of our new website, and with it, the sharing of our pursuits, struggles, and achievements. We believe in the sharing of all knowledge gained through the construction of our vehicle because we are not against the other teams, but in a very real way, we are against the rampant, unsustainable consumption of fossil fuels. Without the open and widespread advancement of high efficiency and alternative fuel vehicles the planet we leave to our descendants will be a lesser place, we will not stand idle and wait for change. We believe that there is no limit to what can be attempted; our time is the only cost, and wasting it, our only risk.
