Thank you!

May 31, 2017

Our campaign has officially ended and the final total is $3,375! Thank you to all of our donors for supporting us along the way! We will be ordering batteries within the next few weeks and start putting together the battery pack for our 6th generation vehicle. Also we will be distributing sponsor rewards shortly!

If you would like to follow us as we race this summer and start building our 6th generation vehicle, make sure to follow us on our facebook page!

The work continues!

May 17, 2017

We are now above 60% of the way to our goal at $3,075/$5,000! Thank you to all who have donated this past week to push us over the edge and thank you to everyone who has donated so far. Make sure to share our hatch page with anyone who might be interested to help us meet our $5,000 goal! Even though the semester has finished at ISU, the work hasn't. Many students are taking a week off to go visit family but we are all still working on various essential projects including aerodynamics simulation, sponsor contact, and further tuning on Merc 5s in preparation for FGSP this year. Thank you for all the donations, with only 6 days left in our campaign we have a good chance of making our goal!

Campaign extended!

May 11, 2017

Our campaign has been extended 2 weeks and now runs until May 24th! We saw a growth of $1050 this past week thanks to two big donations from Gary Eggena and Dan Holland! Today the team put new outside fairings on the rear wheels of Mercury 5s in preparation for FSGP 2017. Thank you to all supporters, and make sure to share the campaign to help us gain more funding!
