UGR-19 Sprockets

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

 

Check out our brand new sprockets for UGR-19!

Daniel, who designed the sprockets, explains: “It was decided that a new final drive ratio was needed to complement the switch to smaller 10-inch wheels. With the help of OptimumLap simulations, a smaller rear sprocket was decided upon and then simulated in the finite element software Abaqus to ensure the geometry can withstand the torque from the engine.” ⁣

A big thanks to the University of Glasgow’s mechanical workshop for making them for us.

Congratulations to Andrew!
