What drives you forward? "Bandit" and "Mantis" run on internal combustion engines, but our FSAE Electric racecar "Thor" runs lightning-fast on batteries!
Two weeks into our campaign, we have reached 86% of our $5,000 goal. Thank you so much for helping us move forward in bringing our designs and ideas to life. We are so grateful for your support and generosity, and we want you to know how much every donation means to us.
Here is what's happening with our Formula SAE vehicle "Mantis"!
Formula SAE is an international collegiate design competition held by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Engineering students from all over the world design, build, and test formula style racecars that are then entered into one or more of eight total competitions held around the world. Eighty universities will be competing at the FSAE West competition in Lincoln, NE. Ranking in the competition is dependent on a score based on a 1000 point scale with points coming from design, cost, sales presentations, and racing events.
This year’s car, codenamed Mantis, is based on the Savage 2 design from last year, but includes many significant changes. The center of gravity will be lowered substantially and the entire suspension system will be dramatically improved with the addition of front and rear anti-roll bars and new geometry. Mantis will also be the first UCI FSAE car with a full aero package! We are confident that Mantis will be the highest performance and best placing FSAE vehicle ever produced by the Anteater Racing team.
