Help us go FASTER than ever before!

We are looking to raise $4,000 to support the construction of the BAJA vehicle, your funding goes to various channels that will allow us to represent our school in the best way possible.

Our Challenge

The competition is an annual event that thousands of students from North America participate in to determine which school can design the best off road vehicle. In addition to designing, building, testing, and racing the Baja buggy on our own, we will be organizing our facilities, obtaining funding, purchasing materials, and adhering to all SAE regulations; all of this will happen while balancing a full course load.

The Team

Our team is made up of six core mechanical engineering tech. students and a group of valued advisers including teachers, engineers and previous team members. Our 2016 team focuses on improving the vehicles acceleration and maneuverability. To do this we are:

  •           Redesigning the suspension
  •       Redesigning and shortening the roll cage

With the help of your funding we are confident in our ability to complete the task we have set out for ourselves. We have the motivation, skill, and work-ethic and with your support we will be able to meet our goals

Industry Partners 

  •           Laser-Fab will be cutting our frame pipe. With their TRUMPF TruLaser which has accuracy of +/-0.005” thus reducing the margin of error significantly. Laser-Fab gave us the unique experience of dealing with real world industry standards, allowing us to apply to broaden our knowledge beyond the classroom.

  •           Applied Research and Innovation Services (ARIS) since the members of ARIS are experienced engineers/technicians they are able to foresee problems that we as students couldn’t. They allow our team to use their facilities and tools for the manufacture of our vehicle.


      Budget Breakdown


      Transportation includes shipment of our vehicle and tools, flights and lodging. Materials and parts include everything that makes up our vehicle. Many tools are not available or portable at SAIT, purchasing these tools allow us to be prepared and competitive during competition. Equipment ranges from racing suits to helmets for our racers. Services includes everything us students cannot do, from welding to coping.

  Thank you for supporting our project!
