Abstract

Location: Reed Hall of Science Room 214 & Zoom (pass code: 030265)

The SAE Baja Suspension team has worked to optimize the vehicle’s suspension for the SAE Baja competition. The SAE Baja competition includes both static and dynamic events. The static events include a business presentation, a cost report, as well as a design presentation. The dynamic events include an acceleration and braking tests, a suspension or rock crawling course, a maneuverability course, as well as a four-hour endurance race. Optimizing the suspension includes testing weight distribution, shock pressure, camber, toe, and the addition of coil-overs. The team also has been overseeing the overall Baja team and progress to ensure the vehicle will be complete and ready prior to competition.
