2015 Competition Update

With each new year comes new members, new designs, and new competition. In our 11th year of competing in the American Society of Mechanical Engineering East Coast Human Powered Vehicle Competition, we placed 28th out of all the schools involved in the competition.

The largest improvement on our vehicle this year was in our fairing. With an increase in composites research and experience from older team members we were able to design and build a lighter and more aerodynamic fairing than ever before.

We would like to thank the University of Central Florida for hosting the competition and all of our generous sponsors who made it possible for us to turn ideas into realities this year!
