Welcome to USQ Motorsportís 2008 Formula-SAE campaign.
In 2007 we improved our result from our earlier campaigns and are looking at
an even bigger and better entry in 2008. A big thank you goes out to all our sponsors
and supporters, for without them, we would not have achieved what we did.
Our aim this year is to evolve the design of the 2007 car
with emphasis on improving the steering and front suspension arrangement. Some
change will also be made in the cockpit layout to comply with new FSAE rules on
driver access and egress.
Major improvements this year include:
|Lighter and smaller chassis than last year|
|All new aerodynamic bodywork|
|Upgraded cooling system|
Our R&D team is working on the following for future years:
|Custom built lockable differential|
|Onboard track positioning and logging system|
Recruitment of new team members has commenced and in
particular we are looking for:
|Mechanical design engineers;|
|Electrical/control system engineers;|
|Highly skilled and motivated team members; and|
Repairs of the drive train of the '07 car are progressing well, and we will
soon be ready for driver training, and for track testing of the new engine and cooling systems.
Team presentation to the Toowoomba Local Group of Engineers
The team workshop area has now moved to the basement of S-block adjacent to
our engine dynamometer and other test facilities. This new workshop is better
suited to the teams design and construct activities and we appreciate the strong
support provided by the Faculty of Engineering and Surveying.
