Body & Aerodynamics department

The vehicle chassis and the aero package of the racing car are produced in the Body department. The full monocoque made of carbon serves as the supporting element for all other components of the car. But they also develop the seat, the pedals and important safety components, such as the crash box. They focus a lot on downforce and fluid simulation when developing and manufacturing the aero package of the vehicle.

Electrics department

The Electrics department works in both the high voltage and low voltage range. The accumulator, motor controllers and converters for our new electric drive are developed here. In addition, the department is in contact with almost every component, whether it is the supply, the control or the validation. They manufacture and plan the wiring harness, take care of data acquisition and evaluation and develop PCBs and cases based on design specifications.

Vehicle Dynamics department

Tyre behaviour, chassis design and driving dynamics – these are the topics the Vehicle Dynamcis department deals with. Moreover, they design a two-part braking force system, the steering gear and the kinematics. They work a lot with CAD, CAE and ADAMS simulations.
