Team MechEstremo, an off-road racing team was conceived in 2017 by a group of off-road enthusiasts in NIT-Agartala. The team participates in BAJA competitions organized by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Inspired and motivated by previous BAJA competitions, the team has set out to a build a car that would set a benchmark for design standards in NIT-Agartala and is uprising its standards day-by-day.
This event lets us enhance our knowledge and skills in the field of automobile engineering. For the event, we have to design and fabricate a four-wheeled single seater all-terrain vehicle which should be able to overcome all the off-road challenges of the track.
Who we are & What we are trying to do here?
We, Team Mech-Estremo are a group of 25 students of National Institute of Technology, Agartala lead by Parakh Jain ( Captain - Team Mech-Estremo ) who design, fabricate and formulate our very own All-Terrain vehicle and encompass new techniques through learnings from our experiences, seniors, and lecturers. We bring the real insight of Engineering by applying theoretical concepts to help our passion become tangible. We use different engineering software, materials and implement sound manufacturing techniques & skills to build a resilient off-road buggy.
We start building an ATV from scratch every year and test rigorously to all extremes to make the buggy firm and sturdier than the previous one. The final test is when we compete at BAJA SAE INDIA event at Pithampur, Indore.
Giving a tough fight for the teams that compete from all over the country is not an easy task unless you support us.
What are our achievements?
2017: Team Mech-Estremo secured 71st position, among the 388 colleges that came from all over the country in the BAJA SAE VIRTUAL ROUND 2017.
2018: We secured the 99th rank among teams from all over India in the main mBAJA 2018 held at Pithampur, Indore.
2018: We have qualified BAJA VIRTUAL ROUND 2018 and ready to give a tough fight in mBAJA 2019.
