ABOUT US

4ze Racing

We are a formula student electric Racing team based in SRM University, Chennai. We are making electric race cars for the International Formula Student/Formula SAE (Society of Automobile Engineers) competition held at various locations all over the world.
History
The spark initiated in 2012 when a group of students decided to build a car with the knowledge they gained from college and give the world a non-polluting vehicle. Initially the team was small but their hopes were high and keeping knowledge as their base they made their first prototype car RIO. From then there was no looking back for the team grew larger and better with more young and innovative minds joining the team. They worked together day and night on their next project and after 3 years a new car VOLTAIC was built. The car was formula style racing car. With voltaic team went to Italy in the event FSAE Italy in 2015. Our team was one of the five which went to Italy from India and compete against team globally at such a large platform. The team secured 18th position in the event.

Overview

As world is not stopping for anyone, we are also progressing and reaching new heights in no time.We are a formula student electric Racing team of 40 hardworking, dedicated and passionate 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th year students from various departments of engineering and have successfully completed our first car for the FSAE events based in SRM University, Chennai. We are one among the only five teams from INDIA to participate in this kind of competition. Our vehicles boast zero tail-pipe emissions and partnering with us would connect you to an eco-friendly project. With the experience gained from the prototype and With the constant Support of S.R.M. University and dedication of the team members, our first prototype vehicle 'RIO' was launched in 2012. The team took the challenge of making the second electric race car which could prove its mettle in the International arena and completed this vehicle "Voltaic" in 2015. Our team has gained huge amount of appreciation due to such an immense performance at fsae Italy event, as our main motive is to innovate and design a car which will not only provide the experience to us but also is proved to be a baneficial product.

ABOUT FSAE

Introduction

Formula SAE® is a student design competition organized by SAE International (formerly Society of Automotive Engineers). The first competition was started back in 1979 after Mark Marshek, then at University of Houston (Texas) contacted the SAE Educational Relations Department in 1978 to discuss adding a variant event of the Mini Baja; the name Mini Indy was founded.

The concept behind Formula SAE is that a fictional manufacturing company has contracted a design team to develop a small Formula-style race car. The prototype race car is to be evaluated for its potential as a production item. The target marketing group for the race car is the non-professional weekend autocross racer. Each student team designs, builds and tests a prototype based on a series of rules whose purpose is both to ensure onsite event operations and promote clever problem solving.

Dynamic events

Static events

Events

Static events

The static event is divide into three parts.
Design : The design presentation is awarded the greatest points. It presents the car’s innovative and effective solution and their advantages. An expert panel inspects the car, before asking team question about the design of the car.
Cost : In this event all manufacturing cost reports are presented. It includes the cost of every single component is attached to the car.
The last part is the:
Business Presentation: here the team has to convince the export panel that its business plan will appeal to the target market and that it is possible to put the car in serial production and that it will be profitable to the investors.

Dynamic Event

The dynamic event comprises of five parts.
Skidpad :
The car is driven as fast as possible around the corners without losing grip.
Acceleration : The car is accelerated from zero to maximum speed over a distance of 75 m.
Autocross :
The car is driven over short distance composed of sharp turns and straight as fast as possible.
Efficiency :
Average fuel consumption over the endurance race distance is measured.
Endurance: This event has the maximum points. The car is driven over 22 km as fast as possible. Battery economy, performance, durability id tested.

ABOUT ISNEE

About ISNEE

ISNEE (Indian Society of New Era Engineers) is an organization that provides a platform to all the Engineering and Diploma pursuing candidates to steer their path towards Technical and Managerial expertise. ISNEE's design challenges Go Kart Design Challenge, Quad TORC and Formula Green; with phenomenal competitive stages guide every participant to empirical glory. All the research and analysis that goes into the designing and fabrication of vehicles gives unmatched preeminence to the participants as compared to the others. Candidates perform in groups, which prepares them to flourish with Morales. This formulated path enables a student to become a thorough professional with healthy knowledge of Engineering and Management.


National Go Kart Design Challenge was the first event organized by ISNEE in the year 2013 and from then, there was no looking back as the organization started launching events one after the other. The next design challenge organized by ISNEE was Quad Torc. To boot up their successful run with the existing events, ISNEE planned to launch another design challenge in which the participating teams are supposed to manufacture (Design and Fabricated) a formula vehicle which is fueled by electric power.


ISNEE aims to impart practical knowledge in students. A thorough professional is one who is both theoretically and practically sound; theory is what is taught in college and practical knowledge is what they acquire by taking part in the design challenges organized by ISNEE.

Event organized by ISNEE

For the first time ISNEE is organising a Formula Electric Event in India i.e. Formula Green which is to be held in Coimbatore from 29 March 2017 to 31 March 2017. All Formula Electric teams of India are going to take part in this event.
