DUT12

DUT12 Team Picture The DUT12 is the second electric car of the DUT Racing team. The biggest difference compared to the DUT11 is the four-wheel-drive system introduced this year. This makes it possible to use the brake energy from all wheels to power the motors which results in an even higher efficiency. In the DUT12 the batteries are no longer placed behind the driver, but on both sides alongside the driver for better handling. Also a new method is used to produce the monocoque, namely prepregs. This method ensures that the resin is properly distributed between the fibres which will save weight with respect to last year.
