SAE Supermileage Team

As mechanical engineering students at Lawrence Technological University, our senior project is to design and fabricate a vehicle for the SAE Supermileage competition. This year’s competition is located in Galesburg, MI from June 9-10, 2022. The SAE Supermileage team is one of five Blue Devil Motorsports competition teams that Lawrence Tech has. For many students obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, these teams are a part of their assignments and overall grades.  Our team is currently made up of eight undergraduate students and a graduate student volunteer. The 2021-2022 team has already completed most designs as well as fabricated the carbon fiber body of the car. We estimate that the vehicle will require around $11,000 to both complete and cover the costs of the competition. Our vehicle is made up of five subsystems. These being: body, powertrain, engine tuning, steering and braking, and electrical.

            Our team’s goal for this fundraiser is to raise $4,000. Each gift will help us in purchasing the following materials needed to help complete our vehicle:

  • A $25 gift will cover the cost of a dremel tool accessory kit.
  • A $50 gift will cover the cost of an air saw for the carbon fiber.
  • A $100 gift covers the cost of the rack and pinion.
  • A $300 gift covers the cost of the engine.
  • A $500 gift covers the cost of the vinyl wrap that will go on the outside of the car.
  • Gifts of over $500 will be used to buy other materials such as aluminum plates and supports.

If your company wishes to donate materials or equipment please contact team captain Christopher Kaju at ckaju@ltu.edu. As a way of saying thank you, your company’s logo will be placed on the vinyl wrap of the car for any gifts over $100. Perk options are located on the right sidebar. We greatly appreciate your support. For regular team updates and on the vehicles progress, follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Please visit our team’s home page for more information about the team and competition. 

Thank you for your generosity and for supporting the 2021-2022 SAE Supermileage team.
