Kettering SAE Clean Snowmobile

Kettering CSC competes in the Society of Automotive Engineers' yearly Clean Snowmobile Challenge. 1st Place Champions 2014, in it to win it for 2015!

The Kettering CSC team reengineers a production snowmobile for improved emissions, fuel efficiency, and reduced noise per the SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge rules. Each March the team travels to Michigan Technological University's Keweenaw Research Center to compete against other collegiate design series teams and their clean snowmobiles. To match the school's rich GMI heritage, the Kettering CSC team has a history of success which will continue to grow stronger each year.

Thanks so much to Accurate Technologies Inc and Kettering Formula SAE for the use of the new ATI Vision software and data logger! With only one week until competition, we can use all the help we can get!

HUGE Thank You directed towards our newest sponsor Accurate Technologies Inc.

Their newest product, the DLX data accquision system, bridges a critical market gap by providing professional level data aquisition in a form factor suitable for the powersports industry.
