Dino

Our most recent car, this guosty is an absolute machine! We made a few changes from last year, including a much smaller frame, reducing weight by about 35 lbs, adding a hood and tweaking suspension and gearbox components. You can spot Dino because he is our only gray car, and is probably at the front of the race

Dino's first race was in Maryland, where he placed 41st overall, by far our best result ever.

Bongo

Bongo was the car we built during the 2016-2017 school year. He's been to many competitions, including Maryland, Kansas, Midnight, and Blizzard, where his icy white frame looked fresher than Alex Friedman right after a haircut. 

Fun Fact: During the Kansas race, one of Bongo's gearbox shafts broke right in half. Of course, being so well prepared and an esteemed engineering team, we didn't have a spare, so we had to drag Bongo all the all the way back to the tent, disassemble the entire powertrain system to find the problem, weld the shaft back together (don't do this at home) and then reassemble everything. We did all of this in record time and even got a full lap in before our welded shaft snapped again!

Elbows

Elbows: Known for her googly eyes, northwestern-arctic camo and ability to shear hubs faster than freshmen loose bolts, Elbows is our third oldest car. Kansas 2016 and Midnight Mayhem 2016. Her proudest accomplishment was both tying for first in aesthetics as well as seventh in maneuverability at MM. The name Elbows comes derives from her cockpit bending out wide like elbows to accommodate taller drivers. She is an absolute workhorse, and is our most reliable car, as she is three years old and still drives like new.


Knuckles

Dressed in a classy, sleek black, Knuckles is built for hill climbing. He was designed and built in 2014 then refined in 2015. He has raced in two official SAE competition, Maryland 2015 and Tennessee 2016, as well as Blizzard Baja 2016 and Midnight Mayhem 2016. The name comes from the bulky and tall front uprights which are referred to as knuckles.
