The 2016 car features the lightest gearbox CWRU Motorsports has manufactured in the history of the program. Our gearbox combined with our CVT led CWRU Motorsport's to its best ever finish in acceleration as well as great all-around performance on the track.
Custom Rear Hubs
"Model D" includes CNC machined rear hubs that are lightweight and can stand up to the rigors of the Baja endurance race.
Lightweight Brake Calipers
2016 marked the first time ever the CWRU motorsports team manufactured our own brake calipers. These brake calipers gave "Model D" high-end braking ability to deal with mud, dirt, and sand.
Custom Front Uprights
One of the biggest improvements to "Model D" was custom aluminum front uprights that were CNC machined. These uprights were lighter than the uprights from "Model C" and stood up obstacles from three grueling competitions.
