For the Mini Baja team’s Senior Project, the group was tasked with building a Mini Baja car. The vehicle must meet the requirements laid down by the SAE International group, who will be judging our fully finished car based on a strict set of guidelines. The team’s goal was to build a car that passes its rigorous inspection. This means there was much at stake as we built this car. Once the car has been fully built, our team will take it to a competition that is attended to by various teams all across the country. There, we will be judged on how our car performs in a series of obstacle courses, culminating with a final endurance race, going head-to-head against cars from every state, with the winner crowned as champions. This feat is not to be taken lightly, for the competition is fierce, with multiple skilled racers. We strive to be able to put together a car that we can shower with champagne and go down in the annals of Buffalo State engineering history.
