dc.description.abstractThis thesis will analyze the MIT Formula SAE car to determine performance of our current and future cars. The conclusion of this analysis will drive the powertrain decisions for our Model Year 2017 (MY 17) and other future cars. Very little data relating to our cars currently exists, but is vital to proper design; therefore, that is the first step of this thesis. After current performance has been gaged, the next step will be determining a motor that will optimize vehicle performance for competition. From this our team could use either two motors with an electronic differential or one motor with a limited slip differential. Tangential to determining motors, analysis will also be done to determine whether chains or a planetary gear system would be more optimal for connecting the motor output to the rear wheels.en_US
