The objective for this project was to improve upon the 2006-2007 WPI Baja Vehicle for participation in SAE's 2008 Baja Series competitions. Several major vehicle systems were redesigned using both mathematical and computer-aided modeling and simulation. These included the drivetrain, front and rear suspensions, and rear chassis. Improvements in these areas resulted in a lighter and more powerful vehicle that remained as safe and as durable as the previous design. The new parts were fabricated by the team using WPI facilities and with the help of local businesses. The finished vehicle will compete in Illinois (May 08) and Montreal (June 08).
