What is the procedure for the calculation of the diameter of the drive shaft of a BAJA buggy?

Yes, there is a procedure in our design book. If you are going to build a BAJA buggy you have to go reverse that is by applying Market availability of drive shaft. Whatever you calculate is impractical or not available in the market. So the best procedure is to do a market study and then […]

What are the powertrain calculations for the E-Baja competition?

It is similar to m-BAJA powertrain calculation. First of all, you should find drag forces on the vehicle then find out the torque on wheels, after that decide your reduction on the basis of your motor output torque. Its depend on you that which type of transmission system you choose (auto or manual). Then find […]

Does eBaja ATV transmission require CVT?

E BAJA ATV does not require CVT. Only Motor and a gearbox do it all of the power transmission to the wheels. As the voltage varies through the throttle, the motor’s torque and RPM are varied…so no CVT required for variable transmission.

Glossary Transmission System

A. Accumulator: A device that cushions the motion of clutch and servo action in an automatic transmission in order to provide smooth shifting at various throttle openings. Accumulator valve: A valve that regulates accumulator action based on load and throttle opening. Adaptive Learn Automatic Transmission: Many of the newer automatic transmissions made today can “learn” and adapt to […]

Performance of vehicle – Manual OEM gearbox calculation

PERFORMANCE OF DRIVE TRAIN If a driver wants to keep its speed constant, he needs to have equivalent engine power to the running resistance but needs more power for acceleration to overcome the acceleration resistance. In the case of deceleration of the vehicle, the inertia energy of the vehicle can be restored by the inertia […]

CVT in a BAJA car

As none of us are going to design and fabricate this complicate design, this section deals with the tuning of CVT rather than its design. In this discussion we focus on a particular type of CVT and try to tune it, taking into account all the required parameters. Though other methods are also available, the […]
