The purpose of this MQP was to design and optimize a formula SAE race car for use in the FSAE 2018 competition based on a frame designed and built by the 2016-2017 FSAE MQP team. The major goals for this MQP were to improve performance and to reduce vehicle weight. The car was divided into subsystems, and the 2016 car was analyzed and used a starting point for design decisions and validation. The suspension and engine subsystems were studied extensively as it was determined that these systems needed the biggest redesigns. The steering subsystem also needed to be significantly modified in order to fit in the smaller frame (compared to the 2016 frame). This report will fully detail the car and explain what worked, what didn't, and how it can be improved for next years MQP team.
