It gives me immense pleasure to present before you our opening newsletter, on

behalf of my entire team. Today as I stand before you, we’ve grown from two
students with a dream of building race cars to a 20 member strong team working day
and night with a common goal. With this newsletter, we hope to reach all our
stakeholders, i.e. the sponsors, the faculty, the administration and our fellow
students, and will present before you the aims of the team and the design

First of all, I thank our faculty advisor, Dr R. P.

Gakkhar and our HoD, Dr. S. C. Sharma, for
giving us such an opportunity to showcase our
talent. I also thank our alumni, Mr Subodh
Sharma, Mr Kamendra Kumar, Mr Pramod
Saxena and Mr Pravesh Srivastava from the
bottom of my heart for supporting us in all
possible ways.

We welcome our seed sponsors! Announcing the names of our initial sponsors, they

About the competition: Formula SAE

Formula SAE is an international engineering design

competition in which students design, build and
compete their own race cars. It is a yardstick for
engineering principles and teamwork of the
participating teams. There are specific rules for all
systems on the car; failure to comply with, results in

More than all that, Formula SAE is an experience

every engineering student yearns for during his
college life, and the lucky ones cherish it the rest of
their lives.

various FSAE cars from around the world

Our Aim this year

The competition is in December this year. We will build a racecar and successfully test it before
the competition and aim to complete the endurance section at Australia.

Also by undertaking a project of this stature, we will

 Make all our stake holders proud of what we are doing – faculty, administration, alumni,
and sponsors.
 Establish an FSAE culture in the institute: will attract raw talent and turn them into a
team of highly motivated engineers year after year.
 Instill in the present and future teams, values and ethics of working towards a common
goal as a team.
 Prepare the members for tomorrow’s hardships by making them find the solution
Form follows function – Overview of the design process
Design of our racecar started with listing performance goals on one hand and analyzing tires on
the other. As tires are the only source of external force for a car, the performance of the car
solely depends on how well it uses its tires. Thus the goals were adjusted accordingly. The basic
parameters of the car having fixed (give or take, since the process is iterative) and the tires
analyzed, it was time to connect the dots. The suspension system was modeled around the
tires, such that the system’s geometry will use the tires in optimum fashion.

An internal arrangement of all the components was decided upon and packaging of all these
parts (ie drivetrain, driver, steering etc.) was fixed. The chassis is just a large bracket that holds
all components of the car together. It was modeled keeping in mind the strength to weight
ratio and packaging. We have also modeled custom parts that we’ll be using in our suspension
The engine we’ll be using: Honda CBR 600RR (below)
Regarding the drivetrain, we’ll
be using a Honda CBR 600 RR
engine modified to suit the
competition requirements.
The intake and exhaust
systems are custom designed.
All the air into the engine will
pass through a 20mm Ø
restrictor (as per rules). The
final drive ratio has been
modified accordingly. The
limited slip differential will be
chain driven via a 62 tooth
