2014 Formula SAE Rules
This introduction normally highlights areas of the 2014 Formula SAE rules that teams should understand and consider. However from 2013, the FSAE rules have moved to a 2 year rules cycle such that only on odd years will major changes be made to the regulations. For the 2014 FSAE rules, most changes are small corrections or clarifications except for the EV regulations where the changes are more extensive since these regulations were new for 2013. Any changes can be identified by text that is in italics. Specific changes of note are as follows: -
the test method for laminate shear test -
car and helmet mounted cameras
– Neither this introduction, nor any other summary, is a substitute for reading and understanding the Rules. The Rules are both a controlling and a reference document and should be used for those purposes. Do not attempt to design your car based on the parts of the Rules you happen to remember from the last time you read them. We cannot stress it too strongly – Read the Rules thoroughly and repeatedly.
