In 2016 the MESArc wanted to expand into surface vehicles, and so the Road Warriors ground division was formed. The Road Warriors are designed to research, develop, and test surface vehicles ranging from on-road to off-road vehicles for recreational use and for sale. The program is proud to have developed a new line of easy to build DIY ground vehicles and win a 5,000 grant to support their efforts. The program has partnered with local hobby shops, online distributors, and Traxxas to produce product reviews of the latest ground vehicles. The Road Warriors currently reside in Loveland Colorado.
