The Internal Combustion Legacy
1997 - 2020
Due to COVID-19, LMS-20 took the combined efforts of two teams to complete. After the cancellation of the 2020 season, LMS-20 participated in the Formula SAE Nevada 2021 competition in which the team took 22nd place after having an electrical malfunction in the endurance event. It is the last Internal Combustion car of the program. Marks the end of an era
LMS-19 placed 24th overall in Lincoln after a strong showing of 9th in acceleration.Winning 1st in design drawings, LMS-19 vehicle will be represented on the 2020 FSAE shirts for competition. LMS-19 continued to the KTM 690 Duke.
LMS-18 placed 28th overall in Lincoln after a strong showing of 6th in skidpad. A malfunction arose after the 4th lap of endurance. LMS-18 switched to the 690 Duke.
LMS-17 placed 36th overall in Lincoln after a different car caught on fire during the endurance event. LMS-17 continued the use of the turbocharged KTM450.
The LMS-16 was close to success but placed 35th overall after issues arising in the endurance event. With the discontinuation of the previous engine package, the LMS-16 switched to a turbocharged KTM450.
The LMS-15 showed strong promise through the Lincoln competition, however placed 33rd overall from issues arising in the endurance event.
The LMS-14 again made a strong showing in Lincoln, NE placing 11th overall! This placement put LOBOmotorsports ranked 5th in the country and 18th overall.
The LMS-13 continued the strong UNM showing in Lincoln, NE and placed 12th overall! Building upon the successful 2012 car, the LMS-13 included a full aerodynamics package, used the Yamaha Genesis 80fi engine and CVT.
The LMS-12 made a big debut at the first Lincoln, Nebraska event placing 10th overall! Building upon the sucesses and failures of past cars, the LMS-12 included a full aerodynamics package, used the Yamaha Genesis 80fi engine and CVT with imense focus on tuning the CVT, and an all new belt final drive. It placed 14th in design, 5th in presentation, 36th in cost, 20th in acceleration, 25th in skidpad, 12th in autocross, and 6th in endurance.
The LMS-11 was LOBOmotorsport's first vehicle to sport a full aerodynamic package, including a front wing, rear wing, and under-tray . This, along with other features, allowed 2011 to place 26th Overall, out of 86 teams. 2011 Placed 8th in Design, 9th in Autocross, 12th in Presentation, 14th in Acceleration, 15th in Skidpad, and 26th in Cost.
2010 placed 19 out of 79 at FSAE-California and was UNM's first car to compete with the Yamaha Genesis 80fi. 2010 is quick on its feet weighing only 475 pounds, utilizes an undertray that produces downforce at speed to help it grip at speed, and has the brains of a Microsquirt ECU.
UNM's first year using the Yamaha Genesis 80fi engine, 2009 set the groundwork for future LOBOmotorsports teams. The 2009 car also had a Garett GT12 turbo. Unfortunatly, the 2009 car did not make it to competetion due to blown motor just weeks before the competetion.
