Roxy was one of the most ambitious DFR cars ever, representing a series of significant DFR milestones. Roxy attempted the first ever reduction in wheelbase and track width, which resulted in the first sub-500 pound DFR car. Roxy was the first DFR car ever to make the Design semi-finals, as well as the first DFR car to make the trek to Formula SAE in England, placing a solid 5th in the entire competition.
However, Roxy’s most significant achievement was placing 8th in an extremely competitive Formula SAE field in Detroit. Roxy had been extensively tested, including a trip down to Dallas, TX, for tuning with Charlie Nearburg, and had been taken out for at least 2 track days per week before competition.
