Formula SAE (FSAE) is a competition where university students are challenged to design, fabricate and race small open-wheeled vehicles. This work outlines the development and analysis of a wheel assembly for a race car which carried out by the James Cook University Motorsports. A number of strategies are utilized throughout the paper including load calculations, modelling by SolidWorks and finite element analysis via Ansys for each part of the system including the upright, braking system and hub shaft.
