DJSR 02 was built using a KTM Duke 390 engine, with the aim of reducing weight and thus boosting accelerating capability. The second prototype weighed just under 200 kilograms, achieving a 30% weight reduction over the previous variant. With this car the team competed at Formula Student India 2016 securing a 6th position overall despite being a first year team at the competition. The all inclusive transmission and suspension design along with the compact packaging of the car lead the team to securing a coveted 4th position in the design finals. The team’s well maintained finances and budgeting resulted in the team placing 2nd in the cost event. DJSR 02 was among 9 teams who competed in the endurance event. The judges acclaimed the team’s design methodology and saw great potential in the team.
