I completed my minor in motorsports and will be going back for my masters in motorsports once the program starts, but I was never on the SAE team. I just worked on the cars in class labs and lectures. Maybe I'll join when I go for my masters.

All my photos are on my laptop.

2006 FSAE Competition West, our RAW time in endurance was nearly 20 seconds quicker than the rest.

http://kettering.edu/~fsae/

first off i want to say i do not participate in Kettering's formula SAE program for 1 reason, the system is completely backwards. 1 car with 2 teams working on it (A section and B section goes to school at different times and never contact each other) 3/4 of a term is spent tearing apart the last teams design because they have a different idea of how to build the car. for some reason they do not believe in testing, they dont understand that the reason the teams that do so well in the competition do well because they spend most their time testing adjusting and getting used to the car. they also dont let the best drivers drive, which is completely asanine. they go strictly on time spent in the program and class standing. I participate and currently am president of the firebirds club, which is dedicated to autocrossing (your own cars) and the club just runs so much better in general. I know we also have the buggy and i think we have/had a clean snowmobile program, but after all the issues with FSAE i had had enough.

Middle Tennessee State University...this was our first car/competition; competed in FSAE West this year. Our program is pretty small, mostly made up of a few of my close friends and I. I don't think it'll be around when we're gone, but our Mini Baja team is doing pretty good, they've just started work on their 4th car.

Where is the SAE Baja forum?

http://saber.engineer.gvsu.edu/sae/

Second place in chain pull, 20th in acceleration and 47th overall. Heck yeah I was driving in the chain pull.

Grand Valley and The Hotsauce Race Team.

bentheswift, are you on the Baja Team? We stayed at the same hotel I think I gave one of your guys a beer.

Haven't posted much in the other forums, but I can't pass this thread up.

Ben beat me to it, but I"ll post it again. http://www.beaverracing.org

I was the president for the OSU SAE programs this year and team captain for the formula team.

Our Baja team won both the west and midwest events this year. I think it's safe to say we are The force in Baja.

The formula team won the acceleration event, as well as the marketing event at FSAE west this year. Due to some optomistic sizing on our cooling system we didn't complete the endurance event. We were poised for a top 5 finish if we had finished.

If you're looking to get involved at a school in the north west and looking for contacts you can get ahold of me. I can hook you up with the right people.

Rochester Institute of Technology.

I wasn't a member of the team though. I wasn't into cars at the time like I am now.
But I do know they had a kick ass team when I was there. When I was there from '94-'99 they placed 2nd, 2nd, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 2nd.

Montana State University Formula SAE

This is only our second year, and I wasn't involved with the club last year, but I plan to be as much as possible this year and next fall.

We only placed 45th last year... but it was also our first car.

Sorry for the delay. In the second picture, I'm on the far right [Look angry because we did poor in Detroit but very good in California... Our car didn't break in California.]
