Cooper Motosports would like to thank our sponsor, IMCO, for their sponsorship of carbide endmills. These will be used for the manufacturing of a majority of the components on the vehicle; without these endmills our designs would always just be a design.
Product performance and integrity. Because that’s how we work.
Founded in 1977, IMCO tools are sourced and made in the United States and shipped to customers worldwide.
IMCO is family owned and operated, headquartered in Northwest Ohio along the I-75 industrial corridor, just minutes from the Ohio Turnpike (80/90 east-west) and I-75 (north-south)
Cooper Motorsports was formed in 1994 when Cooper Union students competed in the SAE Baja series. In 2004, an intrepid group of four mechanical engineering students started development of a racecar for the Formula SAE competition and a new team was born.
The competition requires students to design, build, test, and race a real race car. Since 2006, the team has built 4 open-cockpit formula-style race vehicles showcasing everything from mechanical design to electronic control systems.
Despite its limited resources, the team continues to thrive. Since its birth, the project has grown into an interdisciplinary effort between dozens of students of different majors within Cooper Union striving for excellence in every aspect of engineering design.
