    About This Project

    The formula electric competition began in the summer of 2013. Vehicle design and presentation are judged by industry professionals. The dynamic events include acceleration, autocross, skid pad, and endurance .

    Research includes classroom learnings and hands-on engineering skills to determine a balance between performance, weight, and cost of parts to create a well-designed race car that performs well at the competition. Different systems will be researched and created, including chassis, suspension, and especially the electric drivetrain. This aims to create a fully electric race car that does not use any fossil fuels, and can use 100% renewable energy.

    Blast off!
