Abstract: The project was aimed to design the frame & suspension of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Baja car which is a single-seated all-terrain vehicle and is used for off road usage and endurance on a rough terrain. In many aspects it is similar to an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) except that it is much smaller in size and has safer rollover capabilities. The modeling of the frame and suspension is done by using pro-e software. This design is checked by Finite Element Analysis after estimating the load and the weight of the frame optimized.
Keywords: (SAE), (ATV).
