Formula SAE Michigan is a collegiate design competition held every year at Michigan International Speedway. The University of Akron Zips Racing competes against 120 other teams in eight different events. The cost event requires a costed bill of materials and outline of how the team's open-wheel formula car is built. The event is scored on the car's total cost, the report's accuracy, and how students redesign components to meet a cost standard. This project is an abbreviated version of the cost report submitted for the 2018 Formula SAE Michigan event. Part drawings have been redacted due to their proprietary nature.
