The Mini Baja is an off-road vehicle that must survive the severe punishment of rough terrain and competes in the areas of hill climbing, acceleration, maneuverability, mechanical design, safety, endurance, and an engineering sales presentation. The object of the competition is to provide SAE student members with a challenging project that involves the planning and manufacturing tasks found when introducing a new product to the consumer industrial market. Competitions usually involve mud, obstacles, 100+ cars on the track simultaneously, mud, and mud.
