Keeping to the -oxy ending for name selections, this newer vehicle was given a major upgrade in terms of functionality and style. With sweeping body panels, this car marks the first Baja car from OU that looks as good as she drives. While the majority of the design process was just fabrication and trial and error, efforts were begun in terms of a CAD model and FEA simulations. Kinematics spreadsheets were created in order to have better understanding and validation of the car’s design, and it really showed in the design event.

Foxy was also the first Baja vehicle at OU that traveled to two different competitions. Doing decently well in Washington, and extremely well in Auburn, this set the bar high for following Oklahoma cars, and gained respect from many other universities.
