P14224: Baja Hybrid Drivetrain

Problem Definition

Table of Contents

Project Summary

The RIT Baja Team has expressed an interest in improving driveline efficiency and dynamic control. The drivetrain has not had a significant format change since the 90’s, using a single speed reduction box coupled with a CVT. While this has been and continues to be an effective means of transmitting power to the wheels, and is the preferred solution amongst the top performing teams, the team would like to explore other options; specifically a gas-electric design. The team would like to receive a working bench top prototype of the drive system for the purpose of testing the gas electric system to compare it to the existing system.
