In the year of early 2014, the students of Rajendra Mane College of Engineering and Technology came together as a group of active and willing members which led to the formation of a team. “Team Full Throttle” participated in National Go-Kart Championship 2014 (NGKC) where the team made it up to the pre-final round.
In this so called event, the team proficiently designed the Kart and planned the needful with the help of our experienced faculty guidance. There was involvement of sponsors to support our financial budget. Unfortunately, we failed to make it to the final round of NGKC. Now, we Team Full Throttle determine towards a new start and have entered into International Series of Karting – ISK initiated by Mean Metal Motors, Manipal.
‘Go-kart Design Challenge 2015' is a design challenge initiated by Indian Society of New Era Engineers to bring and enhance good engineering approach and practice in graduate and diploma students. The objective of the competition is to de sign and fabricate a Go-Kart. The challenge takes place in two stages; 1st is Pre-Final Round and 2nd is Final Round. This competition will consist of several tests and tasks to be performed by the vehicle and successfully clearing each test and task will decide their existence in the competition. All the participating teams have all creativity and innovation flexibility with few restrictions mentioned in this rule book. This design challenge gives teams the chance to demonstrate and prove both their creativity and their engineering skills in comparison to the teams from other universities across the country. The vehicle a nd associated documentation must be researched, designed and fabricated by the team members without direct / indirect involvement of professional engineers, faculty or professionals inracing . Proof of manufacturing (photograph/video) can be asked to present at any time during the event. Vehicles, which have been professionally fabricated, may be penalized or even disqualified from the competition. The decision of the organizing committee in this regard will be final.
‘International Series of Karting – ISK’ is an initiative taken by Mean Metal Motors, Manipal to increase awareness about motor-sports and incubate a new generation of motorists, who are self-sufficient and form a force to be reckoned with. The event ISK is well designed and thorough with the international rules issued by CIK-FIA. The event is interesting, brain storming with its many levels that’ll judge and test particular teams. The teams, would be consisting from all over the world with their very own manufactured Go-karts.
‘Imperial Society of Innovative Engineers' is a society for the student to provide platform to develop and enhance their engineering skills as well as managerial skills, which will bestow creative mind’s thinking patterns to the upcoming future technology, so that our mind can boost enough power to face any hurdles in the way of learning the new tactics to deal with ever changing or dynamic technology.
