    Z,

    I'm out of the game actively since 2013, so I am not the best person to provide you with answers on the Zurich car.

    With "Go Big" I never meant a "big car" or "big XYZ". I meant it more in a...

    GTS,

    I take that. It was not very well written.
    Still, I stand by my point that the Australian e-Car competition (and if I remember correctly RMITe was one of the first electric cars globally)...

    Z,

    thank you.

    My suggestion about 4WD is not a pathetic decision. It is by far the best solution according to our numbers.
    We are refining our lap time and event point simulation since 6-7...

    Fun Fact:
    Zurich tried to do CF wheels in 2008 for their second car.
    And in every subsequent year thereafter. The first functional wheels were ready for 2011...

    So. Nope. Don't do it.

    Looks like a tight race between Karlsruhe and Zurich for the E-Class win, I think Zurich should have the edge after a faster 2nd stint in Endurance but Design results are still open and potentially...

    That is just due to the fact that there was no Top Team at the competition.
    Top Teams score high in every competition. For example at FS Spain Electric last year, Karlsruhe came in 4th at 865points....

    No, so far I haven't. Just know that Stuttgart (EV) won, Karlsruhe (EV) 2nd and Delft 3rd.
    Delft won Design in front of Zurich and TU Fast.

    Karlsruhe (EV) won all dynamics besides Endurance (2nd)

    fine. I'll bite.

    1) FSAE should stay FSAE. If you want to play with stock Go-Karts; that's another racing series.

    yes, that is correct. They run an interconnected hydraulic suspension and have the dampers for the different modes magnetically controlled - sitting on the back of the car on top of the...

    I think I would have some nice cars for that ;) Granted the batteries are probably not good enough to last 22km anymore but I would bet our 2012/2013 cars would still run Top10ish in AutoX ;)
