Formula Racing Project

2016 Racecar Pedalbox

How do you make pedals adjustable?

This was my first project on the Northwestern Formula Racing team. I designed and manufactured a lightweight and adjustable pedalbox for the 2016 Northwestern Formula competition vehicle. I did CAD and FEA in Solidworks, machined and welded the parts in our machine shop, and assembled the final design onto the racecar in time for competition.
