Ssr F Type

From 1984 to 1991, the Speed Star Wheel Racing Team participated in the All-Japan Formula Two Championship, which was then renamed the All-Japan Formula 3000 Championship from 1987 onwards, with Masahiro Hasemi, Jeff Krosnoff and Yoshiyasu Tachi as the drivers.

Team Kunimitsu raced an SSR-sponsored Honda NSX piloted by Kunimitsu Takahashi, Keiichi Tsuchiya, and Ryo Michigami in the 1996 24 Hours of Le Mans, finishing 3rd in the LMGT2 class and 16th overall.
The team also participated in the 1978 and 1979 All-Japan Formula Two Championship with Takahashi, finishing 6th and 4th respectively. Naohiro Fujita finished in 3rd place for the team in 1981. Motoharu Kurosawa also drove for the team in 1981 and 1982, and finished 10th and 6th respectively.

The company is often credited as being the first to ever make a three-piece wheel with their MK-I wheel in 1971, and remains one of the most notable Japanese producers of aftermarket and motorsport wheels. Hasemi Motorsport also entered an SSR-sponsored Nissan Skyline RS Silhouette Formula in the 1980’s. This car was built to Group 5 standards, and raced in the Group 5 class in super silhouette sports car races across Japan, primarily at Fuji Speedway. This Super Silhouette Skyline went on to win 2 races in 1982 and 5 races in 1983. SSR also supplies wheels to many teams in the Super GT sports car racing series. The company has been an official sponsor for Team Mugen and Autobacs Racing Team Aguri in the GT300 series, as well as for Team Real Racing [ja] and Team Kunimitsu in the GT500 series. Team Mugen went on to win the 2013 GT300 championship, while Team Kunimitsu won the 2018 and 2020 GT500 championship.

In the racing series predecessor to the All Japan Endurance Championship, as well as individual races, Speed Star Wheel Racing entered a Group 4 BMW M1 for endurance racing. This BMW M1, chassis #1077, was built and sold by Ron Dennis and Project Four Racing in 1979 instead of being used in the defunct BMW M1 Procar Championship. In Group C, the SSR M1 won the 1979 Group C Suzuka 500 mile. In Group 4, the team won the 1980 Japanese Endurance Championship, as well as the 1980 Mt Fuji 500km, 1980 Mt Fuji 1000km, 1980 All Japan Mt Fuji 500 mile, and the 1981 Fuji 1000 km. The M1 was rebuilt to Group 5 regulations for 1982. In Group 5, the SSR M1 won the 1982 All Japan Fuji 500km, 1982 All Japan Mt Fuji 1000km, 1982 International Suzuka 1000km, and the 1982 All Japan Mt Fuji 500km, as well as finishing 4th overall in the 1982 World Endurance Championship round at Mt Fuji. With this level of dominance in 1982, the team again won the Japanese Endurance Championship. The M1 was retired in 1984 and has since been used for historic races and promotional purposes.

Does SSR make good wheels?
So SSR has the multi piece wheel. Pretty much on lock. In 1971 with the mk1. The mk1 was made out of their yellow Factory in Japan.
SSR has been a wheel supplier to factory race teams of Honda, Toyota, and Nissan, customer race teams, and operated its own race team, in racing series such as Super GT, Japanese Touring Car Championship (JTCC), All Japan Grand Touring Car Championship (JGTC), and Formula Nippon. Their aftermarket wheels are popular with owners of sport compact and import cars on the race and show circuits.

SSR was the first and only alloy wheel manufacturer at the time to utilize the semi-solid forging (SSF) process in 1991, a process which the company later patented.A new factory in Nara was established in 1993. The lightest wheel by size made at the time, the SSR Type-C was released in 2000. In 2002, SSR invented a two-piece hybrid wheel using both semi-solid forging and heat treatment technologies.
Speed Star Racing Wheels were launched in 1971 by Speed Star Co., Ltd. to produce three-piece wheels. The company later launched two-piece wheels, as well as both cast and forged wheels.Speed Star Racing was the title sponsor of Mark Hein and TI Racing’s entrant into the 2000 Spa 24 Hours. The team raced an Acura Integra Type R and finished in 24th place.

How much does SSR Type F 16 weight?

SSR Wheels (formerly known as Speed Star Racing Wheels) is a Japanese wheel manufacturer for both motorsport and aftermarket applications, headquartered in Osaka, Japan.SSR notably helped motivate the creation of the JWL standard in 1973 and helped establish the VIA third-party statutory board in 1981, in order to certify quality standards within wheel manufacturing in Japan. These standards are regulated by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism. SSR wheels were heavily used in Japanese touring car racing, most notably by SSR-sponsored team Hasemi Motorsport in the Japanese Touring Car Championship and All Japan Grand Touring Car Championship. In these series, Masahiro Hasemi raced an SSR-equipped Nissan Skyline GT-R. The team raced in the JTC-1 class of the JTCC from 1989 to 1993, winning the championship in 1989, 1991, and 1992, while finishing in 3rd in 1990 and 7th in 1993. In the JGTC, the team raced in the GT500 class from 1994 to 2000, with a best standing of 2nd place in the 1994 and 1995 championships. SSR’s factory race team, Speed Star Racing, participated in the top flight of Japanese single-seater racing in the 1977 All-Japan Formula 2000 championship with Kunimitsu Takahashi, winning 3 races and finishing as the championship runner up.Biden’s decision is undoubtedly welcome in Kyiv. But it doesn’t necessarily mean the U.S. will supply any of its F-16s. And while Ukraine may eventually receive some secondhand F-16s from Europe, the only other region with significant numbers of these fighter aircraft is highly unlikely to give Kyiv any of theirs.

Belgium, Denmark, and Norway are also reportedly willing to supply Ukraine with F-16s. These three countries, along with the Netherlands, have an estimated 125 of these fighters in service between them. But aside from the United States itself, the region with the largest number of F-16s is not Europe. It is the Middle East.
And east of the Middle East, Pakistan has over 80 F-16s, although Islamabad would unlikely transfer or sell any of these jets to Kyiv for many reasons.Previously, I was a mechanical engineer at the Charles Stark Draper Laboratory in the Vehicles and Robotics Group. I hold a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from MIT, an MS in Engineering Sciences from Oxford, and a BS in Aeronautics from Caltech. I’m also a combat veteran and a major in the U.S. Army Reserve.After months of repeatedly insisting that it urgently needs F-16 fighter jets to strengthen its air defense, there are strong indications Ukraine may finally acquire that fighter aircraft. The U.S. has agreed to support a European-led initiative to train Ukrainian pilots to fly the fighter. Ukraine could, therefore, soon acquire used F-16s currently in service with European air forces. However, Europe is not the region with the most F-16s outside the United States.

Israel was willing to sell Croatia 12 of its used F-16s for $500 million in the late 2010s, but the U.S. objected and the deal was canceled. Washington objected to the transfer since Israel has substantially upgraded those jets since acquiring them three decades earlier. Upgrades included sophisticated electronics and radar systems.

(Photo by JACK GUEZ / AFP) (Photo by JACK GUEZ/AFP via Getty Images)Then there is Egypt and its 220-strong fleet. For decades, Cairo was irked that Washington refused to sell it any F-15s. In early 2022, there were signs that could soon change. However, given its continued political and strategic ties with Russia, there is little reason to expect Egypt to hand over some F-16s to Ukraine.

Other Middle East countries operate F-16s. Jordan has 40+, albeit older models. The tiny island kingdom of Bahrain in the Persian Gulf even has a modest fleet. When the United Arab Emirates ordered 80 F-16E/F Desert Falcon Block 60 jets in the late 1990s, it became the first country to acquire F-16s more modern than those flown by the U.S. Air Force, a historic first.

Greece has a fleet three times as big, 83 of which are currently being upgraded to the latest Block 72 standard. Athens will unlikely prove willing to transfer any so long as it perceives there to be a military threat from Turkey in its region.KONYA, TURKIYE – JULY 17: Members of Defense Special Response Unit within the Turkish Armed Forces … [+] (TSK) CBRN School and Training Center Command and Air Force CBRN Specialist Defense Squadron affiliated to the 1st Main Jet Base Command in Eskisehir, attend decontamination exercise of F-16 warplane exposed to chemical warfare agents at Konya 3rd Main Jet Base Command in Konya, Turkiye on July 17, 2022.

Is SSR Type F forged?
The SSR Type-F is a relatively new wheel and is constructed by their patented SSF (semi-solid forged) process which is essentially a specially produced squeeze manufacturing. Cached
Still, with Israel’s unwillingness to date to transfer any air defenses Ukraine has directly requested, it may also prove unwilling to give Kyiv even older F-16s anytime soon. Last year, Israel even turned down a U.S. request to transfer outdated American-built MIM-23 Hawk surface-to-air missiles it has in storage.

President Joe Biden informed world leaders at the G7 summit in Japan of his decision to back the European training plan. His decision marks a major turnaround from his administration’s previous stances that Ukraine was not ready to receive the aircraft or that training would take too long to impact the war’s outcome. Any transfer of F-16s serving in European air forces to a third country requires U.S. authorization, which they will now likely receive for any Ukraine transfer.An Egyptian air force F-16 Fighting Falcon prepares to make contact with a KC-135 Stratotanker from … [+] March Air Reserve Base, Calif., during inflight refueling training.

Are SSR wheels strong?
SSR wheels are always put through JWL testing before they are used on the street or track. SSR has always focused on manufacturing precise, lightweight, and strong wheels and will continue this tradition for years to come.
The U.S. probably wouldn’t object to Israel supplying Ukraine with F-16s. However, given this Croatian precedent, it may first condition its approval on Israel downgrading those jets by stripping them of such sensitive components.

I have covered airlines since 1989. I was a reporter for six newspapers — Miami Herald, Charlotte Observer, Sacramento Bee, Fresno Bee, Toledo Blade and Aberdeen (Wash.) Daily World — and for TheStreet. I also worked for pre-mergers US Airways as staff writer. My books include Kenny Riley and Black Union Labor Power in the Port of Charleston as well as American Airlines, US Airways and the Creation of the World’s Largest Airline.The United States banned Turkey from buying F-35s after it bought an advanced Russian air defense system. Ankara is now counting on its arms industry to develop its indigenous fifth-generation fighter, the TF-X Kaan. As a result, it will likely prove less than willing to give or sell any of its F-16s to Kyiv anytime soon.The second, third, and fourth largest F-16 fleets belong to the Middle Eastern countries Israel, Turkey, and Egypt, respectively. Israel alone has an estimated 362 F-16s. By comparison, the Netherlands has an estimated 24 F-16s in service, which Amsterdam will soon retire in favor of fifth-generation F-35 Lightning II stealth jets. Denmark has an estimated 30 and Belgium has approximately 40. Norway had 64 before taking them out of service in late 2022, replacing them with its shiny new F-35s.

Abu Dhabi would not likely transfer these jets to Kyiv, given its close ties with Moscow and a growing inclination to balance its strategic relationship with the United States with its economic and political relations with Russia and China. France recently denied a report that it planned on buying the UAE’s Dassault Mirage 2000 fighter fleet, which is in excellent condition, to transfer to Ukraine.
Cairo showed no intention to part ways with its modern fleet of MiG-29M/M2 fighters it bought from Russia in the 2010s. These jets would have been ideal for Ukraine early in the war when Kyiv sought out Soviet and Russian fighter aircraft with which its pilots were familiar.

I focus on the strategic, economic and business implications of defense spending as the Chief Operating Officer of the non-profit Lexington Institute and Chief Executive Officer of Source Associates. Prior to holding my present positions, I was Deputy Director of the Security Studies Program at Georgetown University and taught graduate-level courses in strategy, technology and media affairs at Georgetown. I have also taught at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. I hold doctoral and masters degrees in government from Georgetown University and a bachelor of science degree in political science from Northeastern University. Disclosure: The Lexington Institute receives funding from many of the nation’s leading defense contractors, including Boeing, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon Technologies.
Iraq has a 34-strong fleet that Baghdad has become more reliant on since the Ukraine war disrupted the supply chain for spare parts for its Russian-built helicopters and planes. Turkey has approximately 270 F-16s, which form the backbone of its air force. Ankara is modernizing its older Block 30 models to keep them in service for another few years. Since October 2021, it has sought 40 new modernized Block 70 F-16s from the U.S. along with 79 modernization kits for keeping its existing fleet operational and up-to-date. Some future U.S.-sponsored arrangement could convince Egypt to transfer some of its older F-16s, although that has yet to be seen and is, frankly, unlikely.I offer blunt, uncompromising guidance on national security solutions, bringing complex security issues and oft-neglected defense topics to the attention of interested policymakers and the general public.

Furthermore, the Emirati withdrawal from a deal to buy 50 F-35s in 2021 may make Abu Dhabi more reluctant to part with its formidable 4.5-generation Desert Falcons.

In August 2022, there were reports that the Ukrainians had integrated the AGM-88 HARM missile with their aircraft.Ten F-16s cost a billion dollars; the sustainment cost is another billion. They would eat into budgeting other equipment and capabilities urgently required to defend.The two aircraft were contemporary and performed similarly in most cases in the initial years. Both aircraft have impressive thrust-to-weight ratios. Despite the absence of fly-by-wire controls, the MiG-29 was agile and could maneuver very well.

F-16s facing off against Russia’s air defenses, including S-400, could be a “costly mistake.” You can’t just fly headlong into the teeth of the threat. The first downed F-16 will send ripples across the world.
Initially designed with conventional controls and state-of-the-art aerial missiles for air engagements, the subsequent variants were upgraded with fly-by-wire controls, the latest avionics, and multirole capabilities. The aircraft has seven external stores’ hard points. The most advanced variant today is the MiG-35.The Slovaks received the new F-16s, and the MiG-29s were spareable. Slovakian aircraft have NATO-compatible radios and navigation equipment, as is the case with Ukrainian MiG-29MU1s, and it will be possible to use them quickly and operationally.Estimates are that Ukraine today has around 15-20 MiG 29s and 20 Su-27s. The nearly 33 MiG-29s from Slovakia and Poland will bolster the front-line strength, these are in different states of preparation, but the basics remain the same.Even after undergoing up to 133 days of technical training, the USAF technicians require a year of on-the-job experience to become fully qualified. The same can be abridged under particular conditions. The training can begin even before the supply deal is through.

A greater number of anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons would pay a greater dividend. Ukraine has insisted that the jets would be invaluable in air defense missions during the counter-offensive. The justification rendered appears insufficient.

Ukraine had said it needs about 200 F-16s. Countries can only resell or re-export American military hardware if the US approves it. Exact numbers, by who, and timelines for transferring F-16s are unclear. The coalition plans to train roughly 20 Ukrainian pilots initially.

Interestingly Sweden has said that sending the Saab Gripens is off the table because it could mean sacrificing its defense. Others argue that going without airpower is an even higher risk and that Ukraine requires around four squadrons of fighters to make an impact.
The Ukrainian MiG-29s were put to limited use against Russia during the Crimea operation in 2014. In 2018, Ukraine began domestically upgrading the MiG-29 to have multirole capability, known as the MiG-29MU2. The first upgraded MiG-29 was delivered to the Ukrainian Air Force in July 2020.

Most importantly, the F-16s could be the first significant step of the lengthy process to transform Ukraine’s Soviet-style air force into a Western one. The transition is now inevitable. Only the timing has to be worked out appropriately.
