Formula Student Team Delft, driven by youthful passion and academic precision, aims to build a hyper-efficient, eco-friendly, and lightning-fast racing car for the world's largest car design competition, Formula Student, where they compete for the top prize. On January 23rd, the FS Team Delft presented their new race car at the Design Presentation DUT23, which took place at Technische Universiteit Delft Aula Congrescentrum in Delft.
FS Team Delft's racing car underwent a significant upgrade with the incorporation of Diabatix's advanced technology. The innovative cooling sleeve design, created by ColdStream through generative design, significantly upgraded the car's performance by a remarkable 15% compared to its previous design. This upgrade not only enhances the car's speed and efficiency but also solidifies its position as a top competitor on the racetrack.
The team announced that the improved cooling system enhanced performance and allowed them to remove some fans, resulting in a lighter car. The car can now accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in just 1.5 seconds in fully autonomous mode, making it a force to be reckoned with on the racetrack.
