Formula SAE Michigan 2013 – Uplifting

Georgia Tech FSAE Team
Georgia Tech performed a "ground-up" redesign on this years FSAE with a focus on balancing outright performance with safety and reliability.

All 4 wheels stayed on the ground during Universidad Simon Bolivard  Skid Pad, the test that meaures the car's cornering ability on a flat surface while making a constant-radius turn.

 You can get a great view of the teams waiting to race in acceleration and skid pad from the following video.  See if you can spot  Oregon (1), Univ Michigan (5), TU Graz (6), Purdue (29), NU Singapore (85), Univ of Akron, Univ Stuttgart (3), Univ du Quebec (30), KU (11), Michigan State (15), Univ of Manitoba (86), York College of PA (27), NC State (22), Univ Laval (73), Univ of Toledo (31), Univ of Ontario (115). What coordination from SAE judges.



Congratulations to the Universitat Stuttgart for an exciting engineering competition.  The Stuttgart nose was clearly visible on the outside.  Inside, the reduced weight produced better handling and faster acceleration.

    Outstanding first picture. Very impressive and really draws you into this realm and storyline. The young people seen in this story are gifted and fortunate to have support for this competition. I wish we had more of it here. Bye.
