This project encapsulates one of many areas that make up the USQ Motorsport
vehicle for entry into its second Formula SAE-A competition. The aim of this project
was to undertake the design and development of the drivetrain system, including
brakes and wheels, which would optimise performance and reliability in the
To begin the project many different drivetrain systems and components were
researched to gain the knowledge and understanding required to select an appropriate
system. Investigation into the drivetrain in the 2004 vehicle was also conducted
along with the review of the competition rules and regulations. The development of
the vehicle is a team project and therefore required good communication and
cooperation among team members to design a successfully competitive racecar.
