    ISU Mini Baja Team

    Has anybody seen these guys compete? I don't know if they had this when I was at ISU, but it looks like it would be a helluva lot of fun!

    Generally they are powered by a 50 hp (at the wheels) restricted 4 cylinder motorcycle engine, so top speed (if geared correctly) would probably be 100 mph-ish, but they aren't geared that way (short tracks/accel).

    I was at ISU from 94-99, so they probably were around. Wish I had heard about them when I was in Ames. Looks like a blast.

    Re: ISU Mini Baja Team

    There are a lot of these types of clubs at ISU...the baja team, the solar racer, the formula team, the mini tractor pullers. I don't know that any require a certain major to be involved. And that's not to mention the general clubs like the various sports, scuba, block and bridle, GSB etc. I wish that I would have been a little more involved with a few of them while at ISU. Too busy drinking and studying I guess.
