At the 2017 solar car conference some teams expressed interest in reviving the solar car subreddit. We’re pleased to see that this initiative is already in progress. For now, ASC will continue to support the Google Group discussion forum and will not take an active role in the subreddit. We’ll allow the subreddit to be managed by the teams & for the teams to allow it to grow and develop dynamically. Feel free to start contributing to the community today at https://www.reddit.com/r/solarracing/.
