Materials Exploration

  The Senior Design Students focused this week on, among other things, the choice of materials for fabricating both the Baja and Formula race bodies. While the formula designers focus on fiberglass fabricating methods, the designers in Team Baja are exploring materials ranging from welded aluminum panels, to vacuum formed plastic panels, to fabrics for use on the Baja canopy.
