The objective of this project is to study, analysis, enhanced and further optimize a pedal box system for a small race-car which is Formula SAE Third Race Car. For this new car, UTP FSAE team has decided to use CBR600 engine as it vital part. The proposed design will be based around a hybrid-composite space-frame chassis and the design will be optimized for the best ergonomics, performance and strength-mass ratio. Therefore a further study and analysis on the pedal box system needs to be done. The scope of study includes the usage of computer aided engineering software such as CATIA and ADAMs for modelling and analysis. First, the pedal box system design needs to be performed by using CATIA. Then, stress analysis for throttle, brake and clutch pedal being conducted by using the same software. In order to compare the new pedal box design with previous pedal box design (UTP FSAE Second Car), ADAMs software has been used to conduct dynamics and kinematics analysis. The results explained that the new pedal box design can minimize driver’s foot load to depress the pedal for about half of previous pedal box design load. For stress analysis results, the brake pedal which is the crucial part in pedal box system can endure a 100kg of load. Therefore the results show that the new pedal design is safe to be proposed as a pedal box system for UTP FSAE Third Car.
