Physical Description

abstract
Cowboy Motorsports consists of eight mechanical engineering students presented with the task of designing a single passenger, off- road vehicle. The vehicle has been designed for the purpose of competing in the 2009 SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) Mini Baja competition in Auburn, Al from April 16-19, 2009. In order to complete the design, the team was split up into sub-groups, each in charge of designing the suspension, drive train, and frame. The design process consisted of design goals and specifications, design morphology, mathematical models, engineering testing and inquiry, and a detailed design. The vehicle is powered by a 10 horse power Briggs and Stratton engine. A Comet® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) in conjunction with a chain and sprocket speed reduction will be used for the drive train. The suspension consists of four independently articulating wheels with J/A arms in the front and trailing arms in the rear. The frame will be constructed out of 1.25” diameter 4130 steel alloy tubing with a .065” wall thickness. Frame layout has been set to provide sufficient space to protect the driver as well as accommodate the mounting of the drive train and suspension components. Design of the Mini Baja car has been facilitated by frequent submission of progress reports as well as design reviews conducted in the presence of mechanical engineering faculty and advisors. Governing design factors include: the SAE Mini Baja rules and regulations, the vehicles ability to traverse rugged terrain, and the necessity to minimize weight and cost.
