what nsx_23 said. Monash seem to have everything sorted, and keeping the chassis to a simple spaceframe helps with time management. I was track marshalling endurance on Sunday morning and they looked very quick on track even in the rain. Apparently they were a little dicey in teh arvo session, it was stupendously windy and at points they were driving on two wheels - some of the marshalls were talking about bringing them in because it was getting too dangerous, but they finished both sessions. Edith Cowan University were the only other team with a wing car, and they also did very well at comp.
Overall it was a great competition and most of the teams looked really strong from a completion viewpoint - we had 18 cars finish endurance this year, and most of the non-finishers still managed to crank out most of the laps, meaning we had cars on track from 9am till after 5pm with only a 15 minute break for lunch - pretty exhausting for the volunteers who had to be there the whole day! I managed to escape to the refuelling station in the afternoon.
This was also the first time that an Indian team finished endurance (Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee). They are an inspiration to everybody. It's well documented how hard resources are to come by in India (the only FSAE compliant engine available over there is a Royal Enfield), and these guys still managed to build a car which ran on track (albeit very, very slowly - the fastest lap times were somewhere in the low 60-second mark, and IIT were lapping at about 1:40-2:40 depending on the driver). Their first driver had never even driven any type of car before so it was overall a stellar effort. Also, they only used 1.08kg of fuel for the whole of their endurance run...if the Fuel Economy event in Australia wasn't time-restricted to 125% of the fastest lap these guys would have killed it!
You mean other than "Have fun, and try not to neglect things like studying and sleeping completely." ?
