Lancer 3

Lancer 3 saw tremendous improvements in the reliability and performance of the vehicle. With a completion of all the events at competition and improvements in almost every category, we were very happy with our performance and the overall results. Overall, as a third-year team, we competed with teams who had been around for 10-15 years.

With the knowledge gained from the Lancer 1 competition, major improvements and design considerations went into Lancer 2 in order to reduce the overall weight of the car and improve the performance and handling of the vehicle in order to make the car more competitive.  

Overall Finish: 44th
Car Number: #21
Weight: 478 lbs
Engine: Husqvarna 701
Unique: First implementation of a vibration isolated powertrain

Lancer 1

With the initial creation of the Formula SAE club, the team produced the first SAE vehicle seen by CBU. With only 8 members and no prior knowledge and experience of what to expect at competition, the performance of Lancer 1 was astonishing. In as little as 8 weeks, the team managed to put together a car that passed technical inspection (a challenge that not many first-year teams manage to do) and qualified to compete in the endurance event. This car provided a major learning experience that will forever be remembered by this team and in the history of SAE at CBU.

Overall Finish: 61st
Car Number: #15
Weight: 776 lbs.
Engine: Suzuki GSXR 600
Unique: Heaviest car at competition
