"The Further You Go, The Harder it Gets." Midnight Mechanics. Pulling for First. Some of the past mottos, worn on our caps to keep our goal in mind. We've been competing in the ASAE Quarter-scale competition since 1999, rising steadily through the ranks. We are a student group, based in the Department of Biological Systems Engineering. All students attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln can participate in designing and building the quarter-scale tractor. Current and past members have included students majoring in Agricultural Engineering, Mechanized Systems Management, Biological Systems Engineering, Agricultural Business and Animal Science.
