The purpose of this MQP was to design and manufacture a new frame and suspension for use in the 2018 FSAE competition. Through analysis of the car entered in the 2016 competition, research, feedback from the previous designers, and critiques from the competition judges, optimized designs were developed. Improvements were made to the weight, ergonomics, impact strength, and reliability. Components were designed to incorporate the engine and other components from the previous car. Through the use of FEA the frame and suspension were tested to ensure the performance and safety of the final designs. The car's design also took into account the 2018 FSAE rules to ensure the car would be able to enter the competition easily and satisfy the judges’ requirements.
