    Would be technically allowed if the tire's manufacturer gives approval to Joe according to the rules. Don't think any tire manufacturer would do that though.

    Best solution is make your own I guess...

    Definitely overheating. In my experience, Hoosier tires run best at 60-70 degree Celsius. They can withstand temperatures to about 90-100C but after that they will disintegrate. What kind of...

    Although I agree with your entire post, it's always hard to relate all these parameters to one accurate model. I always wonder how much laptime/points you can get from these more complicated models...

    I think the first part of making the design event better is a consensus amongst all competitions on what design event is actually scored on. I know that FSUK has far more focus on manufacturability,...

    I didnt comment on the front steering link mainly because there aren't any pictures of it ;) . If there is the same amount of distance in the front as in the rear then I also think it will lead to a...

    The tie rod seems awfully close to the lower balljoint on the rear uprights. It will probably cause a lot of compliance during driving causing the rear tires to effectively steer.

    This can't be true. 1.6 km*18 laps = 28.8km which is way too long for an endurance. It's either 1.2 km (which adds to about 22 km) or there were fewer laps. If there were fewer laps and it was still...

    2 endurances? And the best one counted? Or the worst?
    Also, how long was the track? Just the standard 1 km?

    Cool. What is the reason for testing? Also, don't you get into problems with scrub and trail and such or is it only on the rear?

    I suppose there is no correct answer to what is better. The question is, is it worth the effort? Reducing unsprung mass vs. extra time to spend on other parts of the car. Which grants you more...

    Hey Kev,

    I'll quote first, so it's easier to explain:

    "This looks like a violation of A6.1 and A6.3. For other difficult design areas (such as custom engine) it has been proven to be in the...

    Looking at your numbers, I find the tire vertical stiffness quite interesting. I think you've taken the vertical stiffness from your tire from the TTC data, but I wondered if you've ever validated...
