Jill (2020)

Jill was created during the initial peak of the COVID-19 pandemic and unfortunately could not go to a physical competition. The team finished building Jill regardless, omitting finishing touches such as paint and body decals, and we have used it as a practice and testing car. Jill was the final iteration of a rear-wheel-drive car for the team since SAE was transitioning to requiring 4WD. For Jill’s year, competition was held virtually by SAE, and teams competed by presenting their design and mock-business plan to judges. Jill scored 2nd in design at two competitions, and between 8th and 11th overall at all competitions, with 60-70 teams per event.
