THE TUMBLER





Homemade Racecar - FSAE - MD-2
I was on the Toledo FSAE team which was my first experience about racing, but I was always to tall to drive the cars. Decided to build my own budget FSAE car. This is by no means the fastest race car ever built but it still a blast to drive. Spent a year to build the car. It is by no means a perfect car. I learned a lot during the build. To me, actually doing it is the only time when you can learn and grow. So anyone who wants to get bash me about high roll centers, using bike shocks, or having a large amount of bump steer do not understand what it means to learn. In the end, what I have gained is a large amount of knowledge that I can put toward future projects.
