Formula SAE and Student Engineering Projects

Combustion, Hybrid, Electric and Baja … we build them all

Bring Us Your FSAE Vehicle Designs

VR3 has worked with student engineering teams at over 200 colleges and universities around the world, providing tube frame materials and manufactured frame kits that are ready to weld. We do so at reduced cost and also discount our normal setup and programming fees.

But more importantly, we work with university and college students on their SAE International competition entries because we’re engineers and we believe in innovation.


Tubular Frames and Accessories

We’ve done this a lot, so here’s how we have learned to work best with student teams to get your project started and keep it on schedule:

  1. Start early … please!
  2. Call us at +1 519-273-6660 or email info@vr3.ca and tell us what you’re working on.
  3. Provide contact information for your project’s key contact for discussion and clarification.
  4. We’ll need:
    1. your 3D .sldprt or .stp file of your tube structure
    2. PDF (.pdf) file of the assembly drawing
    3. .xls file of your materials list/BOM.
  5. We will forward a quotation for your institution’s purchase order.
  6. Provide shipping and billing information.
