The Milwaukee and Cincinnati Sections of the Society of Automotive Engineers are commended for creating the Recreational Ecological Vehicle competitions. The Society should become more involved with relevant projects by encouraging its membership to establish and support similar events. The Industrial Design Dept. at Arizona State Univ. considers projects of this type sufficiently important to adopt them as the basis for a two semester classroom Design Project. For REV 74, this resulted in the design and construction of an ATV that had a six wheel hydrostatic drive, independent suspension, fore and aft combined steering, and a water propulsion system.
