The lessons learned from the 209 went to good use on the 210. The turbocharged engine was strengthened and refined to produce 82 hp and 55 ft-lb of torque, and increase of 17 and 13 respectively. A revised suspension better suited to the lightweight cars and a much stiffer chassis greatly improved the performance of the car. Unfortunately, the dreaded $0.10 parts plagued the team at both Formula SAE Michigan and Formula Student Germany. The team struggled to a 14th place finish in Michigan when the shifting broke, and an exhaust failure caused a DNF in endurance in Germany.
