Although the HFS-04 team consists of automotive engineering students, not everything is developed in theory. Most of the parts the team is designing is indeed based on theoretical calculations and Solidworks simulations but testing is a huge part of designing a completely new race car.
Exactly for those practical tests that are made to prove the theoretical calculations, the team created a tuning rig to run the engine and to check if everything is working according to the expectations.
One benefit of being a student team is being part of a university of applied sciences therefore the HFS-04 team is allowed to use the testing benches in the labs. This is giving the team the possibility to test the developed parts.
