ER13

With one car already being built and competed, the bar was raised for 2013. Instead of focusing on just getting to the competition, the team wanted to be competitive as well. The team focused on in-house design and weight saving, shaving of circa 70 kilos in the end while still keeping the spaceframe, 13” wheels and a 600cc four-cylinder engine (this time the Honda CBR600)! Components designed by the team included throttle body and mechanism, steering rack, steering wheel, wheel centers and ECU/datalogging system (with a great amount of assistance from FreeEMS), in order to increase understanding and have better control of the design and manufacturing. The team competed at two competitions this year as well, at Silverstone (IMechE Formula Student) and in Helsinki (Baltic Open).
