Valorous LineupValorous stands for courage. Valorous Lineup
was formed with one single thought-Dare to Settle. Valorous Lineup is the
official student formula electric team of R.M.K.Engineering.College. It is a
team of 28 highly dedicated and passionate undergraduate students whose thirst for learning united them together in this quest towards building a class leading formula electric vehicle from the ground up.
Building a fast, efficient and sustainable vehicle is our goal. Students from both, Mechanical and Electrical departments work in close quarters round the clock to realize this dream.
Valorous Lineup is the brainchild of two individuals who wanted to understand what the future of mobility has in store for them and they shared their ideas with a bunch of like-minded people and that’s how this team was born. The going hasn’t been easy but the entire team strongly believes in these words, “It is better to try and fail than failing to

About Formula Bharat
Formula Bharat 2019
is a nation-wide Engineering Design contest conducted by Mobility Engineering
Consortium in which students from various institutions compete with a life-size
Formula-style vehicle in areas of Engineering Design, Dynamic Performance,
Economy & Marketability.
The main intention
of this competition is to design and fabricate a formula vehicle which runs on
electric power that adheres to a set of specific rules and regulations.
The prototype race car is to be evaluated
for its potential as a production item. The target marketing group for the race
car is the non-professional weekend autocross racer.
Each student team designs, builds and tests
a prototype based on a series of rules, whose purpose is both ensuring on-track
safety (the cars are driven by the students themselves) and promoting clever
What we Look ahead at
1. PRESENT GOALS
• We are looking ahead to participate in
Formula bharat which is scheduled in jan 2019 and securing first position in
2. FUTURE GOALS
• Weight reduction will be priority.
• More emphases will be given on increasing
the performance of the car.
• We will also be working on the cost
cutting of the car.
• We will be participating in an
international FSAE event and perform well in the event.
Use of Funds
We have set a target of 4lakh rupees, which
will be completely used for buying parts of the next car. Our plan to use the
collected funds is as follows:
1. Motor- Rs.2,00,000
2. Differential- Rs.75,000
3. Drive shaft- Rs.25,000
4. Steering system- Rs.40,000
5. driver suit & safety apparel- Rs.60,000Secured overall 3rd in hybrid vehicle challenge by ISIE
Impact of the Campaign
Transportation sector emits approximately 261 tonnes of CO2 per year and is
also responsible for the production of 60 percent of the green house gases.
With the exponential depletion of the fossil fuels, developing energy efficient
and sustainable mobility solutions is the need of the hour.
Our present electric vehicle chassis
Electric vehicles are not only more
efficient but also possess zero tail pipe emission.
We at Valorous Lineup would like to give
back to mother Earth and being engineers we decided to come up with a solution
that will help reduce pollution and here we are building an electric race car
whose technology can be incorporated in the vehicles of the future.
We have already completed our design phase
and we are in the midway of our fabrication phase. We strongly believe that if
everything goes as per our plan we will be able to make a car which is not only
technically sound but if we fail to raise enough money then a car with
excellent design but poor manufacturing will be produced which will be a
setback to all the hard work our team members have put into the design phase.
Participating in such events gives us the
opportunity to interact with fellow enthusiasts, get valuable guidance from
experienced professionals and above all gives us a picture how we can develop
formidable mobility solutions that are on par with our international
counterparts. Your contribution will ensure our future generation will get to live
in a world rich in flora and fauna- the world we got to experience. Please help
us realize this dream.
