Default advice needed..

hi jigar
i'm doing my MS in Automotive engg. in baangalore and we have to build a race car more or less on the lines of fsae for a project.
all of us are complete amateurs here and on seeing this thread i thought i can take your help.
we won't be racing this car so we've been allowed to be a bit liberal with specifications.
as of now we've planned to power it with a bullet 350cc engine and since we cant afford a paddle shift, we've been asked to convert it to an auto transmission.
is this possible?
can u suggest any other alternative?
the car will have a chain drive and hence i don't think we can put a differential there.

Hey gyan,

There are quite a few FSAE team members on Team-BHP. Do a search for "FSAE" and see the threads that show up. Im sure you will get some valuable advice from these people.

You mean you arent officially doing it for FSAE and thats why no participation in the race?

What do you mean by "paddle shift"? And electronically controlled shifter?
There are easier, cheaper and more reliable ways to do it - mechanical linkages to the existing gearbox or even a push-pull cable.

Why not? Its definitely possible... Look at how other FSAE teams do it. Almost all of them are chain-driven and have a diff. Look at pics of their cars, you will learn a lot just by looking.
