  • Great design and sample run. Really like the look of your car as well as the bits of humor thrown into the explanation. Really interested to see how the side “hook” innovation works. Great idea to keep the line away from all of your machanics. Good luck in all aspects of the competition. We’ll be pulling for y’all.

  • Good luck, Lunar Car. Who knows, if you do well, maybe they can take it up with an Artemis mission.
