Here we have some pictures of the frame for UCLA’s entry to the Baja SAE competition! This buggy frame was designed by engineering students at UCLA and all connections were laser cut and bent to dimension by computer. All the pieces fit like a glove, much to the delight of the team, and our workers who welded it! Javier worked with the students, assembling and tacking it together, and Terry did a good amount of the final welds. This chassis is made out of 4130 thin wall tube, and welded with ER80-S2 filler rod, which is a good strength match. Because the tubing is so thin, post weld stress relief or hardening in not needed or specified by the UCLA team. We are excited to have our logo on their buggy, and we wish them the best of luck in the upcoming race!
