Hello,
I am a first year member in a Baja SAE club at my university. We are starting to consider other frame designs for our car for the 2020 competitions. Right now, we're using a rear-braced frame design, but I want to look into a front braced framed design. From my understanding it would cut a lot of weight, which is a really important factor. 

My question is, where do I begin to do this? We have a solidworks file for our current design, but unfortunately, all the members that know how to design the frame from scratch have graduated. Do you have any good starting places to figure out general frame dimensions for a rear-braced frame?


Thanks
