VENTURI BUCKEYE BULLET 2 WLSR
The BB2 Venturi is one of the fastest vehicles in the world. The student run team is based out of the Center for Automotive Research at The Ohio State University. Currently the team is in the process of designing a brand new land speed vehicle. This new vehicle branded the Buckeye Bullet 3 (BB3) is anticipated to be significantly faster than previous cars. In the summer of 2010, the team built a battery powered land speed streamliner (BB2.5), that broke the previous world record held by the Buckeye Bullet 1. Each of the vehicles are run on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.
The team's work (Cary's) in aerodynamics will help in not only propelling BB3 to speeds of 400+ MPH but also propelling electric land speed racing into the future. Recently Cary has shown that the aerodynamic performance increases in moving the driver in front of the front axle are negligible. When weighed against the increased complexity of the steering as well as the increased danger of having the driver out away from the center of gravity the team has shown that a new driver in middle design can result in similar performances as the driver in front, this though was not the conclusion of the designer of the Bluebird Electric 2, or BE2, which despite the slightly increased complexity of steering linkage, managed the revision.
The OSU Buckeye Bullet raised the record for the fastest EV in the US to 257 mph at Bonneville Salt Flats in October 2003, besting the old record of 251 mph held by White Lightning. The 31 feet long streamliner is powered by a 400 - 500 hp electric motor and 12,000 nickel-metal hydride batteries! The car is the product of a collaboration between students of the Ohio State University's Center for Automotive Research-Intelligent Transportation, its faculty and private industry.
