Formula SAE & MECH 460

Dec

The Queen's Formula SAE team provides a unique opportunity for team members to earn academic credit for their extracurricular work, through project courses such as MECH 460, MECH 462, and MECH 361. In these courses, students select a part of the car that they would like to perform extensive research on, write and present a report on their findings and what improvements can be made, and are then given the option to bring their findings to life by manufacturing their designed parts.

Rear Wing CFD

Nov

Two-element front- and rear-wings were reintroduced on the Q13, after a one-year absence from our team's car. We saw great success with those wings last year - producing a product that had a higher quality and decreased weight relative to the wings from our 2011 season. This year, we will be doubling the number of wing elements on both the front and rear of the Q14.

One new addition to the Q14 is an automatic transmission system being designed by four of our team's senior members, as well as paddle shifting that will be built into the steering wheel to replace our old shift lever and push-button shifting system.

New Website

Oct
28

Welcome to our team's new website. We've worked hard this season to rebuild our site from scratch, moving from Adobe Dreamweaver to the Drupal CMS.

This change will greatly affect how we communicate with our team's sponsors and supporters. Our new website will be easier to change, which means much more frequent updates from our team members. It is also more modern, and has more integration with our team's Twitter feed and Facebook page.
