UV16 Features

This year's car featured a 3D printed oil pan, air intake, valve cover and steering wheel. We upgraded to a LifeRacing ECU, switched to a bevel gearbox, and incorporated a custom Power Distribution Unit (PDU). A new frame and suspension were designed and fabricated to reduce weight and improve handling. The car and modifications follow a 178 page competition rule book. Have a look at our competition page for more information on the world FSAE event at Michigan.
