Here is the car we made for 2005. Much improved over 2004 in my opinion.
The car uses a Yamaha R6 600cc engine with a custom tuned and dynoed intake and exhaust. Engine managment is done through an autronic ECU which is very user friendly when it comes to tuning. There are Penske dampers and Eibach springs on all four coners accompanied by wilwood brakes with a custom space frame holding things together. If anyone is in University, I highly recomend getting involved with Formula SAE.
These are some construction pictures.
Space frame and suspension.
First time out.
Intake and equal length exhaust header construction.
Intake and exhaust final product.
It's not a competition unless you break something. Oops. This was the front left wheel hub.
