The first car, FS.01, was built in 2009, and since then, according to the rules, we have to build a new car every year if we want to take part in the Formula Student / UAE competitions. For the 2022 season, we are currently working on a new car called FS.14, which will be the only one in the Czech Republic to have a hybrid powertrain.
FS.14 is a revolutionary car. Thanks to the loosening of the rules in the category of formulas with an internal combustion engine, it became the first hybrid car in the Formula Student competition in the world.
FS.13 is the result of a two-year work during the pandemic, when the races did not take place. It has a roll heave system at the front. With 187 kg, it is the lightest car from our team's workshop so far.
FS.12 was used to test new low-profile 16" and 18" tires, carbon collars, a new telemetry system, and to explore the possibilities of using actively powered aerodynamic elements during the pandemic.
FS.11 is the first car of the CTU CarTech team to be first in the overall standnings of a Formula Student competition. The concept changed to two smaller radiators on the sides and an exhaust at the rear with a muffler between the engine and monocoque.
FS.10 was based on FS.09, from which it inherited a number of technical solutions. For better handling of the car, we changed the layout of the exhaust, water radiator and oil container around the monocoque to ensure the least possible moment of inertia and even balancing of the car between the left and right side.
The FS.09 has a completely dry bath, including larger milling of the engine and oil circuit.
FS.08 was our fastest built car. It has a new steering wheel and electrically adjusted ARB. Theoretically, the rear wing DRS was also prepared.
FS.07 is a car with the latest technologies. A dramatic change in the rules has forced us to go even further than ever before.
Major technical changes to FS.06 include the transition from 13" wheels to 10" wheels. It was our first two-colour formula and had a carbon tank and brakes of our own design.
FS.05 is the first Formula Student car with a carbon fiber monocoque in the Czech Republic. The manufacture of the monocoque took 4.5 months.
FS.04 is an optimized car from the previous season. The result is a lighter car with better driving characteristics and better drive dynamics.
The concept of FS.03 is based on the previous version (FS.02) but individual components were completely redesigned.
FS.02 represents a completely different concept compared to the previous car. Great emphasis has been placed on reducing the weight and increasing the overall reliability of the car.
FS.01 is the first car of our team. It is also the first Formula Student car in the Czech Republic. The basis of the designed car is a three-dimensional welded tubular frame made out of structural steel, on which an engine with a gearbox and the car's axles are mounted.
