I was at the competition yesterday and there were a lot of great cars. I think we had less people finish endurance than previous years, but I didn't stick around to see the final count. Anyway, here's a shot I took that you might like, devil500. :)

Our car finished everything, 4th time in school history to have done so, and well on our way to being either the second-highest or highest points scoring team in school history.

Also, I may or may not be running CFD on a front wing design as I type.....

Thanks for the shot! So gutted our car didn't finish endurance, but we found the cause to it our fuel pump cut out on us. It ended up being a wire that got overstressed when we had to move something around during tech. Our lap times were consistent, and no penalties in the 18 laps we ran.. :( Next year's car will be better considering this was a completely new platform.

2013 Results:
Business: 14th
Cost: 35th
Design: 39th
Skidpad: 30th
Accel: 26th
Autocross: 30th
Endurance: 47th
Fuel Efficiency: 22nd

Overall: 35th

Bump.

Anyone from FSAE-A around? Saw results from the competition, congrats Monash for winning, and congrats UWA for getting the twin-chassis car completed.

2014 car is getting there. It's going to be a nice improvement over our 2013 design, but nothing as radical as 2012 to our 2013 car.
