We recently took delivery of our new Briggs and Stratton Junior 206 Racing Engine. We have begun the breaking in cycle of this engine, and are looking for ways to implement it on this year’s vehicle or future models based upon performance statistics.
We are glad to be getting off to a great start this semester with the super mileage vehicle. Many of the design objectives from the fall are on their way to completion this semester. We are excited to continue with projects such as the new rolling resistance tire testing machine in addition to working on adapting a new engine to our existing chassis. The team has a great semester ahead of itself and June will be here before we know it! Stay tuned for future updates and progress on the 2015 UMass Super Mileage Vehicle.
