The problem was to design a racing seat for the SOL of Auburn, Auburn University's $350,000 solar car. The frame was already constructed and very limited in space. The angle of 30 degrees was the most difficult design constraint. The design solution utilized a layering system of Kevlar for strength and stability. The seat participated in a 2500 mile race from Mexico to Canada.
