The fourth vehicle created by Oklahoma students, Sheila is a brand new vehicle concept compared to past vehicles. Weighing a mere 317 lbs, she was the lightest designed so far by the team, but Considering the team lost many seniors after 2012, to finish the year with a vehicle that performs just as great as she looks is amazing. There was a great number of learning experiences throughout the year, and although not very much testing could be done with this vehicle, the team now knows how to function efficiently with one another and finish a car within a shorter amount of time.
