2012 Challenge Update

We are now coming to the end of preparation for this year’s Challenge. Our car is slowly taking shape.

  1. Looks like some good progress there guys.

    Just watch that you don’t go too narrow with the front wheels as otherwise you will risk rolling over and coming off the track around the corners if you have a fast car (using some basic physics you can actually approximate the speed at which this roll over will occur for your car).
    Ideally, you want to have the wheels as wide as possible on a 3 wheeler.

    Remember, top cars will reach speeds of up to 8m/s (or almost 30km/h) in full sun and this will seriously question their stability.

    Keep up the good work,

  2. No problems Mick.

    Do you know the dates for Sunsprint by the way? I haven’t been in contact with my colleagues in NSW for a while and I can’t seem to find anything up online about the 2012 event.
