    Looking for video footage of the 1998 competition, FSAE Michigan or Formula Student

    I'm looking for video footage of the 1998 competition. Particularly, I want footage of UTA's 98 car. UTA's 98 car was one of four Formula SAE cars that used a 4 cylinder 250cc engine (19,500 rpm redline). The sound of these engines brings a smile to my face. Unfortunately, the 98 car was savagely molested by a senior design project and has not tuned a lap in anger for ten years. I would greatly appreciate any one who can provide video footage that might include UTA's 98 car.

    I showed up a little early to Texas Autocross Weekend a few years ago and they were doing some engine tuning on the '06 car. I had spent the prior week tuning the lawnmower-sounding 250 single on our hybrid car to around 12k and they were tuning from 13-19k or something absurd like that. It sounded glorious!

    When you watch that video (England MIRA 1998), watch when the sun makes the tachometer needle visible. When the needle is vertical that is 15,000 rpm.

    It indeed sounds glorious! It happens to have a 250cc I4 Kawasaki motor laying around here...

    If the rumoured power limit for 4WD electric cars comes through in 2015, I will try to talk the new team into building something like this.
