    Thanks! As far as I know, there aren't any teams running 8's right now. With the release of the new, nominally 16" diameter tires, it may mean there won't be any in the future, either. Most of the 8"...

    Hi Doug, this is awesome! Can you give more detail about why you can't drive the small Hoosier 10's? Along with that, is there any possibility of testing 8" tires free-rolling, the same as the small...

    I've seen this since I started working with FSAE teams in 2009, although it does seem to have gotten more prevalent. I can understand that. I was personally reluctant to post details about our...

    I had the same thought. It didn't seem to significantly bother anyone back in the day, but people are clearly very offended by it now. Maybe people are more vocal now because other options are viable...

    I might actually be interested in a rolling chassis for a project, too. I don't care about any engine or wiring

    I'm sure most E-car teams have moved on from brushed motors by now, but maybe you have one of these guys laying around the shop? If so, I'm interested! Feel free to PM me.

    Thanks,

    Trent,

    I understand and respect what you're saying, but why do teams feel the need to design to the limit, anyway? Making the wing smaller by a few mm to ensure absolute compliance is pretty easy...

    I've never understood trying to keep anything in FSAE secret. I did it when I was a student out of respect for the rest of the team that wanted things to be kept quiet, but I can't imagine any team...

    I wonder if the change in Accel scoring will push some teams to run 4's instead of singles or forced induction vs. not.

    I like the upping of Design points. Let's face it, a lot of the Design event...

    No one in their right mind would argue more points should be given to a team that doesn't understand the process and can't support their choices even though they have good looking parts.

    Thanks again, guys. I tend to agree that the discrepancy in voltages doesn't make sense. 300V will kill you as dead as 600V will. In the end, students should be applying the same basic principles to...

    THANK YOU! This is exactly what I have been getting at. The voltage limit should not be an issue for most teams, and I believe shouldn't be an issue for ANY team. Whining about not being...
