Tech Park Testing

 Last Saturday we tested the car at Pitney Bowes in the Rensselaer Tech Park.
 There were a few hiccups in the car - our starter battery and air shifter weren't working. The motor belt was slipping too, but we were able to run the car anyways. Check out the pictures!

  1. You should not use a flat/v belt to transmit power to the rear axle... it's just good for mopeds :)

    Try a chain/sprockets or toothed/ribbed belt instead.

    1. The math suggested it was alright, but we've reached the same conclusion through testing!

    1. They're pretty quick on an autocross course. Check out Youtube, there are a bunch of videos of the Formula Hybrid competition
