PASSING TECH INSPECTION PROVES
DIFFICULT FOR TEAMS AT SAE CLEAN

SNOWMOBILE CHALLENGE
THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-PLATTEVILLE and Montana State
University were among only four teams that managed to pass tech
inspection at the 20th anniversary of the SAE Clean Snowmobile
Challenge (CSC). UW-Platteville was alone in that regard in the Spark
Ignition Class, thus winning first-place overall; there were no other
place-winners. In the Compression Ignition Diesel Utility Class, Michigan
Tech captured first place overall, with South Dakota School of Mines &
Technology finishing second and Kettering University finishing third.
The gasoline control sled against which the team's sleds were
measured for noise inspection was a very quiet one, CSC organizer Jay
Meldrum of Michigan Tech told MOMENTUM. Still, "the teams (sleds)
should have been quieter. We do the testing in a four-hour period, so
the weather was not a big concern. Not sure why the teams did not

do better, but the difference was noticeable between a
stock sled and the competitors."
Similarly, he said, emissions performance by the team's
sleds was "disappointing." The rules did not change, "but
many teams failed soot or some other constituent."
In CSC, each team takes an existing snowmobile and
modifies it for maximum performance in fuel economy,
noise, handling, and several other parameters. Even if
the teams fail the noise and emissions tests, they are
allowed to compete in the various events that make up
the competition, which was held as usual at Michigan
Tech's Keweenaw Research Center in northern Michigan.
However, they are not eligible to win first, second, or
third place-the only places that are recognized at the
competition's concluding awards banquet.
About his team's victory in the Spark Ignition Class,
UW-Platteville team captain Camden Stoppleworth told
MOMENTUM: "Having done as well as we did, I could not
be more proud of my teammates for all the effort and
hard work that they had poured into the sled throughout
the building season of the competition."
Team secretary-treasurer Alicia Zewicki added: "There
was not a single Friday night that the shop was empty.
One team member's dedication particularly stood out
and contributed to the win. This member is last year's
