Front Suspension & Steering

Goal: Allow the vehicle to respond to the loading and displacements resulting from the road geometry and profile in a manner that allows for precise drive control and comfort.

Planned Innovations:

  • Use of carbon­fiber kevlar composites
  • Use of aluminum
  • Use of custom­ fabricated steel rectangular ­tubing
  • Development of design simulation and optimization software within SolidWorks
  • Improved real­world testing that mimics expected competition road conditions and obstacles
