What the project is all about?
Team Mech Estremo, an off-road racing team, was conceived in 2017 by a group of automobile 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 and manufacturing standards in NIT-Agartala and is increasing its standards year-by-year.
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.
We, Team Mech-Estremo, are a group of 25 students of National Institute of Technology, Agartala lead by K. Rohith Kumar ( 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 BAJASAE 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?
2019: Team Mech Estremo successfully qualified all dynamic events and were able to participate in endurance race, with 63rd rank among 400 colleges over the country.
2018: We secured the 99th rank among teams from all over India in the main mBAJA 2018 event held at Pithampur, Indore.
2017: We secured 71st position, among the 388 colleges that came from all over the country in the BAJASAE VIRTUAL ROUND 2017.
What are the problems faced by us?
Team Mech-Estremo of NIT Agartala hailing from North East India, has the following major problems :
- Procuring the required materials for manufacturing from different parts of India to the remote part of the country.
- Transportation of the finished buggy to the main event site and back to the college.
- Lack of sufficient fund i.e.w Crowdfunding.
