D013: Request for Non-Budget Funding

Successful completion of the Lafayette Formula Electric Vehicle hinges on the intergation of several key components: the energy storage system, the powertrain, and the vehicle chassis. The cost to acquire the powertrain components (motor, motor controller, motor test stand, test power supply) is beyond the scope of any single ECE Senior Design Project, and must be expressly approved by the Engineering Department in order for any of these components to be acquired.

The following materials comprise D013:
