What do you think will make your vehicle stand out from others?
The comfort of the driver. Large cockpit space, silky smooth steering and a well-designed suspension system ensure that the driver has a relatively comfortable ride on even the roughest of terrains.
With the kind of effort we have put in for this competition, we are pretty sure that Team mechISMU’s vehicle will stand out as one of the best.
We are still not taken. Any corporate organization interested in adopting Team mechISMU should feel free to contact us at mechISMU.firstname.lastname@example.org.
What do you want to tell other teams which are participating in this contest?
We are a bunch of “race-ists” who have put out heart, soul and brain into this project. We have prepared, persevered, practiced and we are sure we’ll perform. Hope we have one hell of a race out there and may the best buggy win.
IAB Comment– The vehicle looks raw and rugged. The white, red and black paint combo makes this one desirable off-roader. The large steering wheel and seat will keep the driver in good shape even on a long drive. Notice the well optimized front wheel geometry? Must have been done to strike the best balance between steering through tight corners with ease and maximum straight line stability.
The large coil springs at the rear should make it ride like a dream even over the worst of terrains and while at rest, makes the vehicle the roar with confidence. Overall the vehicle looks complete and a job well done. Best of luck.
IAB Recommendation– Treat the wheels with a splash of black, and a couple centimeters of white paint along its circumference.
