Hey everybody,

I hope everyone is having a great summer. We are working on a skeleton crew this summer to finish up some projects that were leftover from the end of the semester. We made some great progress last semester and I want to thank everyone for their time and effort in trying to get this car up and running. We are very close to getting everything working in a temporary sense with our small lead acid battery pack and the two spare tire front wheels. Luckily, everything is being designed to be swappable with the final design parts. I am hoping that we can have a driveable car by the beginning of the next semester so that we can start to focus on revisions and finishing touches, like attaching the rest of the body to the frame and making the final cuts and paint. If anyone is interested in participating this summer, send us an email to SolarCar@ttu.edu. Have a great rest of the summer everyone!

Sincerely,

John Reel

President
