Our Cars




It All Started With Four-Wheel Drive...

With SAE Baja’s push for 4WD integration with competition, our focus was being able to add a 4WD system with minimal weight added.

“If I was fluid…”

The countless hours of bench testing and experimentation with a hydraulic powered 4WD system is a testament to the baja whose build was halted by the pandemic. Nevertheless, the spirit of Bench powered through into the virtual competition with all four wheel turning.

It All Started With A Scale...

   With a heavy car from the previous year and a team ready to make some serious design changes, The Mother of all Bajas' was dreamt up with weight in mind.

"A pound here... An ounce there"

   Finished in a candy apple red, M.O.A.B. sparkles in the pride of the members who took the car from dream to design to physical racer. Being 125 lbs lighter than her predecessor and with validation for every design area, all the way down to the rubber boots on the steering rack, she is a true head turner.
