Metalmite Goes Green! With MSU Baja Racing

Metalmite was happy to receive the call from Michigan State University (also known as the only real University of Michigan) to assist in the machining and development of their Baja race vehicle. Metalmite was called upon to use the 5 axis mill to surface the gearbox case. After hours of machining and creating the perfect gearbox the car was ready. Enjoy the photos provided and the update from the team below. You will notice that “Metalmite” received a great position on the door for the car!

Note from the team: The Michigan State Baja Racing Team would like to thank you for your continued support. The team really appreciates it and to show some of our appreciation, we cordially invite you to the unveiling of our new car. This will give you an opportunity to meet our team members, see what your generous support helps us do, as well as be one of the first to see our car for the 2015 racing season.

MSU Baja Racing Unveiling for the 2015 Race Season

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Engineering Building Room 1345

6:00 pm (roughly an hour long)

There will be a short presentation and our Chief Engineer, Evan Boyers, and Chief Designer, Brad LaBaere will share a few words, followed by the much anticipated unveiling of the car. After the unveiling, you will have a chance to look at the car up close and ask any questions you may have. Once the unveiling is complete and for those interested, the team will be able to give tours of the shop upon request.

As we know many of you may not be able to make it for various reasons, the new car will be presented at Design Day (Friday, May 1) for everyone to see and ask questions.
