The Prototype


Our specialty.  Here is where we derive our success.

in a nutshell

The prototype cars have limited functionality, but represent the pinnacle of efficiency.  

For us, the point of the prototype car is to be a platform for testing 

Our most radical ideas

Constraints


These are the geometrical constraints placed on us by the competition.  While some may feel limited by constraints, we feel inspired.

Constraints


These are the geometrical constraints placed on us by the competition.  While some may feel limited by constraints, we feel inspired.

We use the constraints of the competition as a starting point for our design.  As the engineering process develops, we ensure that each part of the car maximizes every inch of leeway within the rules.  Creativity is kindled by necessity.

Evolution


From 10th, to 3rd, to 2nd... now, we're going for 1st

As our organization evolved, so did our vehicles

The Year Ahead


1st place, here we come.  We're building a sleeker, lighter, and more aerodynamic car this year.

2016 Timeline


In 2015, the plugs for our body was built by a CNC mill.  This video depicts a timelapse of our styrofoam plugs being made. The plugs are a 1:1 model of the car which will be used to make molds, which will then be used to make the body of the car.
