F23

Our 2023 car represented a significant upgrade of the vehicle, with new backplate design and new differential mount designs. This provided us with opportunities to improve upon and test out our vehicle before heading into competition. Other changes included a new electric gear shifting mechanism and buttons on the steering wheel to operate it.
