In the current scenario, automobile sector is spreading its roots to all the corners where the enthusiasts are forming into groups and developing new vehicles. Following this trend, a group of Mechanical Engineering students from Muffakham Jah College, Hyderabad has developed an ATV (All Terrain Vehicle) which was unveiled today at college premises. A 30-member student team comprised boys and girls as 'Team MJCET' built the vehicle in the span of just four months.
The ATV is powered by a 305cc Briggs & Stratton engine that delivers 10hp power and 14.50Nm of torque. It is fully automated and goes at a top speed of 58kmph. According to the Team MJCET, the ATV was done with all safety checks and is fit to perform on all terrains. During the test rides the ATV has participated in the events like Drag Race, Solo-Dirt Race, Armageddon Race and Day-Night Blackout Endurance Race. The college management has supported the team with Rs 4.5 lakh in the process to finish the things and help students to fulfil their dreams on the project.
