Problem-plagued effort last year spurs Baja SAE team from VIT University of India to overhaul itself and its car.

THIS ARTICLE ISN'T A THRILLING DISCOURSE ABOUT ENGINEERING INNOVATION and game-changing technology. It most definitely isn't a dramatic rags to riches story. Neither is it a satirical piece on the often erroneous experiments that make Baja SAE a fantastic platform for students to learn and thrive in the automotive industry.

Rather, this story is the firsthand account of how a Baja SAE team from India with international ambitions is turning its fortunes around through a complete perspective change, calculated risk-taking and, of course, a touch of luck.
