FMXI: looks awesome!

The team is to race in their new FMXI car. The design aspect has been done by Formula Manipal while all the key parts like Hoosier racing slicks/tires, Kiezer wheels, Penske Dampers/Shock Absorbers, Electronic connectors from Lemo etc. are imported from UK and Germany. This car being built at a cost of Rs. 28 lakhs by the students completed its initial testing at Runway9 in Hyderabad and its final test field at Coimbatore before it was airlifted to Riccardo Paletti race track. The Formula SAE judges cars based on acceleration, braking, design, endurance, viability and fuel economy. Hoping that they perform well and make the country proud.
