Phase 1 - Dimensionality
  • Must measure 11.75” diameter  x 1.25” wide

  • Rotor body must mount to a hub carrier  with eight 5/16” fasteners on a 7-inch bolt circle.

Phase 2 - Off-car testing
  • Reduce the static mass by 20%.

    • Was only able to acheive a 12% reduction in mass (12.9lbs vs 11.35lbs)


  • Confirm an existing manufacturer’s claim of 34% reduction in the moment of inertia.

    • Material selection and careful machining was only able to reduce Moment of Inertia by 24%

Phase 3 - On-car testing
  • Rotor assembly must be able to resist the forces created by an angular velocity of 315 rad/sec (3000RPM)

    • AT 100MPH, rotor/wheel is spinning at ~1200RPM



  • Dissipate the heat generated from 125 kilowatts of kinetic energy if mounted on the front axle of the racing car

    • Repeatedly. For 74 laps until the rotor body warped.



  • Rotor must be able to resist the torque provided by the linear deceleration rate of 8 m/s^2

    • GPS Telemetry shows that entry/exit speeds and braking zone times are reasonaly consistent to provide proof of such a deceleration event
