In 2011, OKState racing made a drastic change in designing a brand new car. Old habits were thrown away with a completely new team, organization, and design philosophy. This emphasized the importance of cost and manufacturability.

Large design changes such as the conversion to a new engine, smaller wheels, and completely new frame and suspension system directed the team in a new path. The 2011 car was the first of a new generation of OKState racing models that would be improved and perfected in the years to come.
