  31. Design: Performance Calcs • Motor, Battery, gear ratio combination was essential decision. • Excel Spreadsheet used to compare and optimize. • Takes into account specs and calculates 0-60 time, voltage drop, runtime, and more. • Final Configuration: 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds (calculated)

  32. Design: Brakes • Design Criteria • Braking system that acts on all four wheels and is operated by single control • Two independent hydraulic circuits • Alterations in Design • New master cylinders were purchased due to a leak in the old ones

  33. Design: Brakes • Design Calculations • To optimize handling the front wheels should lock up first in a full braking situation • To ensure this a bias was applied to master cylinders • Front 60% and rear 40% • Full Braking from 60 mph • Calculated stopping distance: 124.73 ft

  34.

  40. Design Changes: Body • Body covers from front tip back to the main roll bar • Side Pods fully enclosed • Molded body to fit over front shocks and allow room for the impact attenuator • Floor and side panels around the motor to protect the motor from debris • Recommendations • Start Early • More than one committed person involved

  41. Performance Testing • Testing has been done for several different aspects of the car • Acceleration • Autocross • Endurance • Testing still needs to be completed for • Braking • Testing is also serving the purpose of acquainting the drivers with the handling of the car

  42. Performance Tests: Acceleration & Braking • Tests were preformed to see if the car can reach the design specifications set with the higher weight • These tests allow the drivers to learn the sensitivities of each of the pedal systems • Completed Testing Results • Max Speed of 67 mph • Test completed within 0.1 mile

  43. Performance Tests: Autocross • This testing is used to demonstrate that the car can fulfill the turning radius requirements that have been set • Autocross testing is also used so that the drivers know how the steering will handle • Completed Testing Results • Slalom runs completed to test the suspension and steering • Resulted in sheered grade 2 bolts, all bolts replaced with grade 8 bolts

  44. Performance Tests: Endurance • The endurance testing serves the purpose of finding out how long the batteries will last under constant draw • This section of the testing will also allow the team to find out how long it will take to charge the batteries during the halfway point of the endurance race at competition • Completed Testing Results • Time lasted : 20 minutes at 10 mph • Resolution: larger controller and more batteries

  45. Testing: Conclusions • The testing that has been performed on the car has shown that we meet the design specifications for • Turning Radius • Maximum power available between 20 and 40 mph • We do not meet the requirements for • Lightweight (under 650lbs with driver) • We expect to meet, but have not yet tested • Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in under 5 seconds (4.5seconds – calculated) • Top speed of 80 mph (85mph - calculated) • 15 minute battery life (at constant speed of 35mph)
