Abstract: In this paper, the overall design process for a Formula SAE vehicle will be explored, as well as the many challenges that must be overcome. Several factors will be taken into account, including modelling and analysis, and overall manufacturing and performance of chassis. This project will be split into several phases: analysis, testing and validation of the FSAE vehicle and the design, analysis, manufacturing. All decisions for design were based on all pros and cons from previous FSAE testing and competition results. The competition consists of various sub events for which points are given and cumulative score is recorded for deciding the ranks. Following the technical inspection are the sub events which include the static events like tilt test, brake test, cost report presentation, engineering design report and business presentation, dynamic events like acceleration test, skid pad, autocross and endurance test. In this high octane scenario a car is expected to perform high on acceleration, handling, braking, aesthetics, ergonomics, fabrication and maintenance with least investment in fabrication without compromising on safety of the driver at different track configurations
