So here at Pitt FSAE, we had a good chassis all done and were on a roll:











Then we go to check the template that we have to follow.. and oh no no no no someone was not attentive when doing chassis design:









So we do the only thing we can do haha:

We had a quick release almost exactly like that on a 68 camaro OPS car my buddy has and you are right there is no slop what so ever even now after 2 years nothin. I hate it when you make a mistake like that it always seems like wasted time to fix it. Good looking chassis.

Meh, one time we made a chassis and then realized after the fact that the table it was made on was crooked, thus the whole chassis was crooked. Interesting suspension setup after that point.

The headers look nice. I had some friends on BYU's FSAE team, I think they turbo'd their car. You guys looking to keep it NA?

Must be my imagination.

cbr600rr engine. I have thought turbo, only problem is we need to put a 18mm restricter before any compression, which makes **** annoying . But the chassis came out real nice (see below). Also, we got a land and sea dyno for this year that I just finished wiring. Im real excited about that.

Check out University of Pittsburgh - Panther Racing for all the pics and updates.
