A Look Into The Design Process

Hello everyone and thanks for visiting UCSB Racing. We are going into finals week and would like to provide you with some of our accomplishments this quarter:
  • The chassis has had 1" added to the rear that will not effect the wheelbase of the vehicle
  • We will be using a 3-link semi-trailing arm design for the rear suspension
  • Components have been placed in the cockpit to insure proper clearances
  • A fiberglass CVT cover with metal safety band has been designed
  • Wheels and tires have arrived
A very rough sketch of what the rear suspension might look like
Note: We use simplified suspension arms to find proper/ideal suspension geometry
