Michigan State’s Formula SAE team has begun the initial stages of development for the 2012-2013 car, Car 15. Currently, all teams are meeting at the shop as new members are learning about the different systems they will be involved with on the car. The number of new recruits are up and the expectations for this years car are high as team leaders begin assigning tasks to new members. The team this year is hoping to incorporate an aerodynamics system on the car, an addition that should greatly improve the performance of this years car over years past.
The creation of Car 15 is underway, and MSU’s Formula Race Team is just getting the wheels turning on what should turn out to be a fantastic race car for the 2012-2013 season.
