Design Deadline and Special Guest Testing Day

This past weekend was very busy for the Formula team. We worked hard on Friday night to complete the design work for the 2019 car. Then on Saturday we had an amazing opportunity to work with Siddarth Kashyap, a Formula SAE design judge and Manager of Tire & Vehicle Dynamics at Cooper Tire, who came to Purdue University to help the Formula SAE and Formula Electric teams. He lead our teams in a lecture presentation on vehicle dynamics then helped the teams on the tarmac with how to setup a successful testing session and how to utilize the data we collect to the best of our advantage. Thank you Sid! We look forward to seeing you and the rest of the teams in May.
