TS14

Team Sparks third car, TS14, is the team's second drivable car and the first car to get through scrutineering. The car’s design is based on earlier models, especially TS13, but there were also made improvements according to prior comments from the judges in the competition.

The car's batteries are arranged in two separate compartments on each side of the car, which are made from a carbon fiber aluminum composite matrix.

The frame is made so the driver gets the space he needs but also ensures a low centre of gravity by leaning the driver backwards. The seat is made of carbon fiber and therefore three times lighter than the seat in TS12, which was made of glass fibers. The car suspension is a double unequal wishbone pushrod system. A new manufacturing process was tried out when making the bell cranks, they were sandcast from aluminum. The positive mould used was made from a 3D printed model of the bell cranks. TS14's body was manufactured from prepregnated carbon fibers<.
