USF Racing Team Visit

TDT is heading over to visit the USF Racing Team Thursday, to get some mentoring insights from  Society of Automotive Engineers student members, who design, fabricate, and race Baja and Formula cars. Like FTC team members, USF Racing Team members “must function as a team to not only design, build, test, promote, and race a vehicle within the limits of the rules, but also to generate financial support for their project and manage their educational priorities.”

Checking out a USF Racing Team car in September

Although SAE students have fewer materials constraints, they’re accustomed to working within time and cost limitations to design machines that meet competition needs. We’re excited to have the opportunity to visit the Racing Team again (we first met with them back in September, before we had a robot) , and can’t wait to hear their thoughts on our current robot design, to get some ideas for improvements before our next competition in February.
