MIT FSAE 2012 car

The team decided to switch to an electric car for the 2013 FSAE competition, and therefore did not design and build an entirely new car for 2012. We instead focused on developing the electric vehicle while competing at the FSAE Michigan competition with the 2011 car. The team added a few upgrades to the 2011 car and initiated a driver training program for the Michigan competition.
