The Scott L. and Nancy M. Carmona Family Performance Racing Lab supports the Cardinal Formula Racing team, a course in automotive engines, and senior design projects. This lab has approximately 2,000 sq. ft. for the assembly of engines and Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) style race cars. Vehicle body creation can be accomplished by setting body components or fixtures directly to a 4ft by 8ft bedplate. This bedplate is directly mounted in the floor of the facility and is under the crane way. A 175 HP engine dynamometer allows students to evaluate engine performance. The dynamometer has modern controls, an attached flow bench, and data acquisition. In addition, a composite manufacturing facility is available for students to learn carbon composite manufacturing. The composite facility has equipment for vacuum bagging and compression molding techniques.
