FS.06


FS.06 is sixth formula completely developed and manufactured by the CTU CarTech team. Even thought exterior seems very similar to the previous version FS.05, design of technical solutions had experienced huge progress. Passion for the detail is obvious from every part of the car. Each side of the formula body is painted to different colour. Majority of components such axles, aluminium anodized parts and other components follows this layout which together makes car looking original.

One of the most significant technical changes is using 10 inch wheels instead of 13 inch utilized on previous models. Reduced diameter of the wheel together with developing cutting edge composite structure of the wheel saved 13.2 kg only on set of 4 wheels. Manufacturing of such part would not be possible without 3D printing technology. Other unusual manufacturing technology used on this model is sintering by laser beam. Overall weight of the formula was reduced to unbelievable 197 kg, thanks to precise design and lightweight components which set our team among world top teams using 4 cylinder engines.

Due to the downforce produced by the aeropaket, we were able afford to speed up in a corners. This system consists from the front 3 segment spoiler and rear wing which together produce total downforce of 602 N at 54 kph. Peak lateral acceleration measured this season overshot value of 3g. Safe stop of the monopost is ensured by the set of custom designed brake callipers. 4 piston callipers at front and 2 piston designs at rear axle were milled from high strength aluminium alloy. Braking system closes custom-made floating discs.
