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.
The SolidWorks EDU team congratulates all the teams that participated at FSAE Michigan.
Thank you SAE - FSAE Michigan truly is an uplifting engineering event.
If you are competing in Lincoln or any other SAE event, we cant wait to see you. For 2013-2014 sponsorship, go to www.solidworks.com/sae. We begin shipping June 30, 2013. Marie
