  • Nice, sleek design. I am looking forward to seeing this one race! Good job on the documentation of your design process!

  • Cool design! The aesthetics of the Batmobile were functional in this car because it supported the solar panel. It also allowed your car to be aerodynamic and light. The website was good, but I don’t see a video anywhere. I also couldn’t tell if it had a steering mechanism. Make sure you have that to stay on the track during the race.
