Abstract

The purpose of this project is to research, design, and construct the power train for WPI's 2003 Formula SAE race car adhering to the rules set forth by the Society of Automotive Engineers. This included selecting an engine and designing intake/exhaust systems, differential housing, wheel carrying assemblies and braking system. These components were concurrently engineered and manufactured along with the rest of the vehicle. The efforts of the entire FSAE Team resulted in the successful completion and testing of the car.
