Design Groups

Our vehicle consists of 5 main design groups. Each group is essential to vehicle safety, performance, and efficiency. Explore our various groups below and see what our members are all about!


Building a chassis is one of the greatest challenges a formula hybrid team may experience. Our chassis was created entirely from scratch, using a mixture of tubular and square chromoly steel. Throughout this process, members learned critical lessons in welding, tube-fitting, and the importance of structural rigidity. Our chassis is now entirely complete and team members now continue to do computations and testing on the suspension/braking system. The suspension system is crucial to keeping the car stable throughout the competition and is one of the most important aspects of a cars behavior on the track. Through air-filled coilovers, willwood brakes, and a dual a-arm setup, the vehicle will remain confident in the corners and smooth in the straights.
