This study aims to produce proper designs of the wheel hub and upright components of a GE 19 racing car. The design results were analyzed using analysis software to ensure the strength of the steering system components is safe in every driving condition. The upright and wheel hub which are designed are the developments of the EVO 14 racing car. The development This development was carried out because there was a change in the drive system from which the car initially used front drive to rear drive. In addition, the development also aims to minimize the occurrence of cracks in the upright and wheel hub components. The method used in this development is the Engineering Design Process model. The object of this development is the wheel hub and upright design which will then be applied to the GE 19 car to participate in the 2019 International Student Car Competition. The data analysis technique used is a power simulation using the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) feature on Solid works. FEA simulation data is in the form of stress contour images and safety factor values for the wheel hub and upright components of the steering system at each driving condition. The results of this development indicate that the design of the upright components and wheel hub of the GE 19 car has good strength and safety factors in every driving condition.
