2010 Formula SAE car could get updated with electric powertrain
The overall idea for the race care is a clever one, since the batteries can be fully charged off-board faster than the car can use the energy contained within them as it spins 'round the track. So, you race to your hearts content, come into the pit stop for a fresh pack and then speed on your way. On top of having fun and learning, the project hopes "to start a new legacy at the University of Washington" since the car could some day race in the Formula SAE Hybrid or Formula Student Electric contests. If you're interested, you can follow the project on Twitter or Facebook and perhaps thrown them some cash here.
