Abstract

The objective of this project was to design and fabricate a racing vehicle for participation in SAE's Baja World Challenge. The vehicle was designed using mathematical and computer-aided modeling and simulation, resulting in a safe, high-performance vehicle for off-road competition, with a lightweight, high strength, and high durability. The vehicle was fabricated meticulously by the team, using WPI facilities, comprehensively satisfying both the design goals and manufacturing constraints, and will compete in June 2009.
