ACT-070 was the first UWAM vehicle to utilise Kinetic Suspension Technology after the team partnered with Kinetics to develop a unique solution for FSAE. This suspension system is very similar to the system currently used in the 2012 McLaren MP 4 12C Supercar.
The team finished 3rd both overall and in Endurance event in the 2004 FSAE-Australasia competition.
The second of UWAM's vehicle the team took International; competed again at the world championships in Michigan in May, 2005.
The team achieved a perfect score and subsequent 1st place in Engineering Design and was within 0.1% of the time of the Endurance winners to place 2nd. In the highly competitive world championship UWAM placed a very close 2nd place to reigning champions Cornell University.
