We will, we will shock you

Do you enjoy mechanical design, finite element analysis, and a whole lot of CNC machining? Formula UBC’s Suspension subteam may be for you! Our front suspension system is going through a major design change this year because of a change in our chassis.

About this subteam

The suspension team is responsible for maintaining optimum contact of the tires with the road under all driving conditions. This requires the design and manufacturing of key components such as anti-roll bars and control arms. Additionally, we apply our knowledge of vehicle dynamics and simulations to fine-tune vehicle handling and maximize track performance.

What you will gain
  • Experience with SolidWorks, FEA, MATLAB and Simulink

  • Hands on manufacturing experience

  • Suspension tuning techniques based on track data
