Motivation and Objective
 Motivation
 The motivation for the project is to be able to push
the limitations on a formula car by innovatively redesigning the existing shift system
 Objective

The objective of our design is to modify the existing
mechanical shifting arrangement on the Pacific Motorsports
Formula SAE vehicle to an electro-pneumatic system such
that the shift sequence is executed in the shortest time
possible.
 Secondary Objective

The secondary objective is to add suspensions to the
formula car so that it will be driveable for the first time
