Lynx Motorsports Formula SAE

Multidisciplinary - Mechanical Engineering & Electrical Engineering

Project Abstract

Formula SAE is an internationally recognized engineering design competition open to undergraduate and graduate students where students design, manufacture, and test an open-wheeled formula style race car. This year’s team aims to prepare the car to go to competition at FSAE West (in Las Vegas, NV this year), since last year’s team was unable to go to competition due to the untimely outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic, which shut down all production on the car. This year’s team was allowed to inherit the existing car to complete its manufacturing and finish in time for competition this summer, since it never made it there last year. So far, even with such a small team of seniors this year (now down to only five senior members), the majority of the car’s work is complete, and the has been driven multiple times and testing and tuning has begun. Most of the senior’s efforts this year have been focused on developing and manufacturing a full aerodynamics package for the car to improve vehicle handling during competition, which will make this year’s car the first car to have an aerodynamics package since 2017.
