Automotive Tilt Lift

I’ll be honest, I have no idea what kind of lift this is, its intended purpose and or why they are using it, but what I do know is that it seems its operator is completely incompetent. My hunch is that it may be used as some type of hoist for race cars that have been stacked. Or perhaps that by placing the car at a specified angle race teams can better set up their cars for banked tracks. Other than that though I have no idea. So… anyone know why a tilt lift like this would be used? If so pipe up in the comments section as I’d really love to know. Click through for the video.

    The banking thing seems about right, possibly to see how steep of an angle the car can stick on?

    Its an SAE car so its just a bunch of college kids lol

    it could also be so they could get ahold under the car easier, its always easier to work on something beside you than over you, or the whole thing could be staged.

    It’s a Formula SAE Car, or a collegiate design competition where college students from around the world design, build, and race formula-style race cars.

    This is the tilt-table, a part of the tech inspection. The car must be tilted to 60 degrees to prove that the car does not leak any fluids.

    I have absolutely no clue why they were tilting the car PAST 60 degrees though. Wrong button.

    I’m on a FSAE team, and people would die if this happened to our car.
