    Don't use a bolt, use a stud that you make yourself to whatever tolerances you care about.

    We usually go through a set of soft (R25A) hoosiers in about 25 hours, longer if we don't care about performance and run them to 50% exposed cords.

    I know you're joking, but remember that data was paid for by your fellow FSAE / FStudent / FSAE-A teams. Perhaps the only thing lower than cheating would be stealing from your fellow teams.

    I agree that 20psi is the highest I've heard of in FSAE. 10-15 is...
