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.

Formula SAE is a worldwide engineering competition sponsored by the Society
of Automotive Engineers (SAE). 140 universities compete with an open-wheel
style race car that they have designed and built. Competition points are
awarded in the categories of presentation, design, cost, acceleration,
skid-pad, autocross, endurance, and fuel economy. Competition rules require
that each vehicle conform to frame safety standards, that the engine be no
larger than 610cc, and that the engine use an airflow restrictor. Student's
are challenged with frame design, engine tuning, suspension setup,
marketing, and many other aspects.
