Fully reflecting the motto of our university, BITS Pilani, Gyanam Paramam Balam, Team Grease Monkeys is a 2 year old team comprises of students from 4 years (1st-4th) from various engineering and science branches. Our team comprises of 34 members organized under different subsystems Chassis, Engine, Suspension, Braking, Steering & Management/Operations. In Supra'14, our team secured 23rd rank out of 196 teams in the event. By getting exposure to experienced teams and advice from the judges of Supra SAE India, we came to know our flaws and the possible remedial actions.
This time team is determined to take our car to the next level, spects are-
Engine-Proved KTM 390 cc,43 Bhp at 9500 RPM,Twin Radiator Cooling Type.
Chassis-300 Kgs.Tubular Space Frame Type.
Suspension.-Double A-arm Custom Made.
Tyres-R13 Sporty Alloy wheels with Low profile Wider section Tyres.
Electronics.-Self Developed Electronics for Data Acquisition of various parameters and operating conditions.
Right now the manufacturing is going on, but we don't have enough money to pay for suspension (it is already been made in the workshop). The team has already spent approx. 5.6lakhs on the car after all members pooled in their share and sponsors money too.
