Week 9 Update: THOR

THOR is making progress! This week the team made sure all the components fit properly in the battery box. They added a firewall, the batteries, cabling, fuses, a battery management system, and relays! Team members Zach, Xavier, and Chris are working hard this week!

Team Bandit is off and running!

Our Baja SAE team is officially running! With two weekends of testing under our belt, we know what changes need to be made to our front uprights and a few other designs. We compete in Gorman, CA in two months!

Check out Team BANDIT's RUNNING CAR! These guys have been working hard all year, can we give them some props?? Well done BANDIT; you're this much closer to competition!!

100% + Thank you!

Thanks to your support, we have reached over 100% of our fundraising goal of $5,000. Every dollar we raise will be used to make our teams and vehicles competition-ready over the next few months. While we have reached our initial goal, we are grateful for any and all contributions to our program. We will continue to accept donations through the end of our campaign – 9 days left! 

 

To express our gratitude, we have produced the following video in honor of our past, present, and future supporters. Check out our vehicles!

Anteater Racing ScaleFunder Update: 0 to 60% in one week!

How fast can you go zero to sixty? UCI’s FSAE Racecar “Mantis” can do it in under 3 seconds!

Because of your overwhelming support, we have reached 60% of our fundraising goal in just 1 week! We’re still reaching for an overall goal of $5,000. On behalf of the entire program, we want to thank you so much for your contribution.

 

Our teams are hard at work preparing the vehicles for competition. Check out our Baja SAE Vehicle “Bandit”!

Over the course of the past 3.5 months the team has collectively logged over 3,300 hours into the project.  We do this because we value the challenge that the BAJA SAE vehicle presents to us.  As time progresses the team continues to triumph over challenges and make forward progress.

This past week, the powertrain team completed the design one of our powertrain guards, the CVT Guard.  We use what is referred to as a Constantly Variable Transmission in our vehicle to maintain the peak power output of our engine at all times. All rotating components are required to be shielded to prevent hands to enter the system as well as to contain all of the components in case of catastrophic failure.

We look forward to competing in Gorman, California, April 27-30!!!
