    I can see your point, but if the aim of the comp is to train engineers, then does it matter if the cars here aren't full of the high tech stuff? As you already mentioned, lots of teams struggle to...

    An update for Melbourne: Enduro2 - first driver brakes were fine (Max Pearse), but on first lap of 2nd driver (Dave McGahey), brake pressure went up and stayed up, so brakes overheating. Haven't...

    We run a PDM. By AUS rules, we could do everything through PDM. But in 2013, we ran the grounds of the ign module and fuel pump through a relay that was controlled by the dash kill and BOT. This way,...

    The stated aim of FSAE is to design something for the weekend autox-er, but as...

    The BOT switch still needs to run through a relay, I think. And I would use a relay for the starter motor (CBR600RR). Everything else can be PDM :)

    In the second Monash enduro, Chris Heath ended up lapping in 1:19.xx seconds. In first enduro, Melbourne did 1.19.xx to 1.25.xx laps. I think 1.2km is the correct distance.

    I don't know why, but I suspect it's to allow more runs from teams that have prepared well. We're such a small comp (25 teams), and we only go to comp once a year (unlike the euro teams or USA...

    More photos

    Hi mech,

    I didn't take many more details shots today, but will try tomorrow in the enduro line.

    The live-timing seems to be off for now, so maybe we all need to screenshot it :D

    Drivers

    Hey Z,

    I think what you also need to add to your survey is how many really fast drivers each team has :D

    Personally, I think ECU has to be near the top of the list - this is a car that has been...
