2012 - ELECTRIC DRAGSTER COMPETITION The Hot Wheelz electric vehicle team was founded by a few female engineering students, an enthusiastic adviser, and a vision to compete in an on-campus electric vehicle competition. In our first year as a team, we took 1st place out of 12 teams in an electric dragster race. 2013 - ELECTRIC ENDURANCE COMPETITION The next competition required us to redesign a "Power Wheels" vehicle with the goal to complete as many laps as possible in an hour. We placed 3rd out of 15 teams and won Innovation award. 2014 - ELECTRIC AUTOCROSS COMPETITION The last competition's focus was on having speed and maneuverability to complete the course in the fastest time. We placed 3rd out of 12 teams.
May 2016 - first sae competition
We had a history of excellence on our on-campus races and we were ready to take our skills to the next level by getting involved in a more rigorous competition. We spend a total of two year designing and building a formula-style electric race car from the group up. In May 2016, we competed in the Formula Hybrid (Electric Only Category) even in Louden, New Hampshire. We placed 3rd out of 12 international teams in the electric drive class and also received two prestigious professionalism awards: the General Motors Spirit of Formula Hybrid Award and the Flat Chrysler Automobiles Gracious Professionalism Award.
