    FSAE Tire Test Consortium -- Round 8

    This post is to announce Round 8 testing:

    + Testing at Calspan TIRF is scheduled for Monday July 30th - Wednesday August 1st.

    + After gauging student interest, reviewing the tires currently used at Formula SAE/Student events and talking with the tire manufacturers (including some not represented below), the following tire constructions have been chosen:

    Hoosier 43070, 16.0 x 6.0 - 10, R25B (free-rolling only, no drive/brake data)
    Hoosier 43070, 16.0 x 6.0 - 10, LCO (free-rolling only, no drive/brake data)
    Hoosier 43075, 16.0 x 7.5 - 10, R25B (free-rolling only, no drive/brake data)
    Hoosier 43075, 16.0 x 7.5 - 10, LCO (free-rolling only, no drive/brake data)
    Continental 43329, 205/470R-13 (free-rolling & drive/brake)
    Goodyear 2704, 20.0X7.0 13 (free-rolling & drive/brake)

    + The test plan will be nearly identical to Rounds 6 & 7.

    + TTC members are welcome to attend the tests in person. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Kasprzak. Calspan is located in Buffalo, New York, USA.

    + Data will be posted to fsaettc.org as soon as possible after the tests.

    We will provide updates on the private forum as they become available.

    As always, thanks to all that make the TTC possible.

    I've started a new Round 8 topic, but also posting here in the "sticky" thread.

    FSAE Tire Test Consortium - membership update

    The FSAE Tire Test Consortium now has 550 members worldwide. Nice of FSAE.com to keep this big TTC thread sticky. A few thoughts repeated from earlier milestones:

    + Thanks to all the TTC contributors -- Calspan TIRF (show those logos!), tire companies, other industry supporters and volunteers...and of course all the member schools. The TTC has been far more successful than the founders ever imagined.

    + Not sure if your university is a member? Search the membership list (spreadsheet) at,
    http://www.millikenresearch.com/fsaettcaccount.xls

    + If your school is a member, you can register for the secure forum. Please use your university domain personal email when registering at http://www.fsaettc.org (gmail, hotmail, etc or "team domain" email will not work). It might take a few days to be approved. We are all volunteers, please be patient.

    + Need a reminder of the TTC license terms? Check the section named, "USE OF THE DATA FSAE TTC LICENSE AGREEMENT" on the public page, http://www.millikenresearch.com/fsaettc.html
    To maintain our student discount at Calspan, it is important that there is no commercial use of the tire data or posting on the open internet. The TTC secure forum is the place to discuss the tire data in detail.

    + On the same public page, there is a list of all the tires that have been tested.

    10 years of the TTC secure forum

    The forum can be accessed at: http://sae.wsu.edu/ttc
    A bit of history -- Brian's post above was from just over ten years ago, back on page 16 of this long thread -- 01-21-2009 01:45 PM. This started a long run of Washington State U successfully hosting the TTC. When WSU eventually retired their server, Brian handled the migration to our current home at http://www.fsaettc.org

    In the course of searching for that old post, I scanned through many of the early posts in this thread. There is a lot of interesting information here, helpful for anyone getting started using laboratory tire data. A number of the people posting back then have gone on to successful careers in the motorsports industry.

    That look back in history also reminded me that before the forum, TTC data was distributed by mail/post on DVD-R. As the membership grew, this started to become a real nuisance and we learned about the unreliability of postal mail to certain parts of the world...

    As always, thanks to everyone that helps make TTC possible.
