Thread: Keizer Wheel Safety Factor

  1. #11
    At the moment that's about it. That and we were lucky enough to be a part of another FSAE championship with Oregon State Univ along with 4 of the top 5 teams utilizing our stuff. Hats off to all of them for taking us with them. We appreciate your efforts.

    Our stuff isn't perfect. We always have room to grow. We try hard for the teams. The last time we did finite element analysis we broke stuff in spots we could not explain. Our experience like yours is invaluable. What works on paper or your computer does not always work on the race track. Allot of teams found that out last weekend. Weekly we deal with 800hp racecars pushing the limits on everything we produce. So we have a pretty good grasp on things.

    Good luck to all the teams this summer in your competition ventures. We look forward to many updates from teams over the summer.

    As far as I can tell, the 4-lugs come in Kosmo mag centers (std 4 spokes we see on may teams, including ours), A1 plate aluminum (looks like an old 60's style wheel), and the 4L spoked version.

    What, if any, benefit is there to using the 4L style wheel centers?

    We currently produce 4 style 13" wheels and 1 style 10" wheel. We are working on a few more options for 10" wheels. All centers can be ordered in blanks for teams to do final machine work. The website will be updated to reflect the 2 new centers offered in a few weeks.

    13" wheels.

    4L benefit- it is slightly less expensive then the mag wheel but still has some flexibility in design. downside is it heavier.

    Any differences in stiffness between the 4L and Kosmo?

    On the cornering fatigue machine the 4L forged center shows less deflection then the Kosmo Magnesium if standard machine work is applied to each. That being said we really had to put the weight to the wheels befor we could see a noticeable difference in the two.

    Any data? I'm trying to decide if we need new wheel centers. We need a 2nd set of wheels for rains.
