Trying a radically new chassis construction method, the teams’ first full aerodynamics kit and a new dual drive permanent magnet powertrain, ts_13 was a well-packaged vehicle that paved the way for the future of team Swinburne cars. Carrying over relatively little from its predecessor, ts_12, allowed the team to completely re-engineer the car to package within a monocoque chassis.

The research and development invested in ts_13 has laid the ground work for the teams present day vehicles.
