Formula E Racing

Imagine if you will, a race where you design, engineer and build your toy race car with a team of 2 to 4 individuals. The sole source of power is a single 16 foot long rubber band. How do you do it?

The race has even been duplicated by some Chinese design schools even.


We did something similar in college, except instead of a race we had to create a mech that could climb stairs. Mine was geared up so much that you ran a serious risk of injury when winding it.


That sounds like it was quite a bit of fun to do.


Very! We did some really cool projects in college.
