Zips Baja Off-Road Racing

Zips Baja Off-Road Racing The Zips Baja SAE is a student design off road race team. We design, fabricate, and test mini baja cars to compete against other Universities.
(10)

Student lead team supported by SAE, challenged to design and fabricate an off-roading vehicle powered by a 10hp Briggs and Stratton engine. In order to compete, the car must comply with several safety regulations and size requirements. Competition entails static events such as cost report and face-to-face design evaluation judged by professional mechanical engineers , along with dynamic events such as acceleration, maneuverability, suspension, and a 4 hour endurance race where teams complete as many laps as possible.

The time is now to defeat ALS!

Hey friends! We wanted to share a link in support of a Mother of one of our team member and everyone diagnosed with ALS.

Also, if you are in the Akron, Ohio area on the 25th of August, there will be an ALS walk also to raise money and awareness!

Thank you all in advance!

Using this link you can donate to the fundraiser: http://web.alsa.org/site/TR?fr_id=13816&pg=entry

We survived Midnight Mayhem IV! We flipped, broke, fixed, broke, fixed (kinda), and broke our cars throughout the evening. Both cars did, however, cross the finish line when the checkered flag was waved. A lot of blood sweat and tears went into our cars this weekend, and we are a better team for It! Thanks again for The University of Louisville and Nickota Motorsports Park for hosting this event once again! #midnightmayhem2017
