Formula SAE-This is Small CRAZY Racing VEHICLE

Knowing that TCL consists of many motorsport nuts/fans, I decided to get some feedback (or words of wisdom for the alumnus) on what people thought of Formula SAE. For those of you that don’t know what it is, an annual competition is held for universities to design an open-wheel race car and compete in several events. The cars are limited to a max displacement of 600cc with a 20mm restrictor placed in the intake. In other words, a Yamaha R6 engine will be breathing in through a hole with a diameter less than an inch!

My name is Sam and am currently a Mech. Engineering student at Cal State Northridge. This is my senior year and will be graduating this year (finally!!). I’ve decided to work on the powertrain department for this year’s car. I remember the first time I set eyes on a FSAE car in our school’s machine shop. I knew I would work on it one day, and it’s finally here! This school year is going to drain all the energy out of me, but I will have a blast doing it.

With many rule changes over the past two seasons, the new UVic Formula SAE Race car entitled UV10 is sure to be the most unique car produced by the University of Victoria to date. New rules forcing adequate cockpit space have resulted in multiple innovative solutions regarding our frame design and construction. FEA analysis played a significant role in developing the most advanced chassis we have ever seen come out of UVic. With a custom fire wall, and driver specific foam molded seats, this car will ensure a secure, yet comfortable ride.2253505900 dc49573f87 z Formula SAE This is Small CRAZY Racing VEHICLE

The FSAE teams are also impressive in the way that pre-big-money race teams were. The same people design, manufacture, assemble, test and drive the cars. They work incredibly hard, with very little money, and often with only basic facilities. And the teams do this while going to school full time. The winners of this year’s competition were announced Sunday. At the top of the scoring (encompassing cost, marketing, design, acceleration, skidpad, autocross, endurance and fuel economy) was the University of Western Australia. A top scoring team in the past few years, many in the paddock were pleased to see the Aussies come out on top (and perhaps the GM brass, having decided to make a strategic commitment to Holden was too). UWA’s car was compact, light and used a lovely-sounding normally aspirated four. In second place was the University of Stuttgart, running another compact though slightly more conventional four cylinder setup. One supposed that Wendelin Wiedeking, the all-conquering boss of Porsche, took pleasure in this result. In third place was the Technical University of Munich, with another impressively compact car. I rate them tops in team uniforms as well. Fourth place went to the University of Wisconsin. The Badgers won last year and have placed well in the past, and so must be considered one of FSAEs powerhouse teams. The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology took fifth place honors. While I’ve called some of the cars above “compact
