Welcome Forgeline!

forgeline-keating-large_image-630We are incredibly proud to announce that Forgeline Motorsports has also returned to the OSUSC Podcast show for 2020! Forgeline has been a staple among OSUSC competitors, and their incredible wheels are as well engineered (and race tested) as they are beautiful.

Stay tuned to future shows to hear more from Forgline, and be sure to visit their website and give them a call for all of your competition wheel needs!

AMP Delayed Until July;

Dave Schardt from Forgeline Cheers Us Up!

Well, the COVID-19 pandemic did finally impact OSUSC albeit temporarily. As announced in this episode the inaugural event at AMP has been delayed until July 25-26. We’re sad to have to push it back of course but the reschedule is now in place  – and we’re happy to announce that’s the only delay to report!

With that said…since we had a little extra time we decided to use the Way Back machine and pull an interview from 2016 with Dave Schardt from Forgeline. Listen in to hear how Forgline journeyed from a pure racing wheel company that now makes passenger car wheels as well, not vice versa. If you’re interested in learning about wheel load ratings (and how they translate with recently developed high-G tires), plus learn about optimal wheel sizes for performance applications, you’ll enjoy this episode very much!

Thanks for listening!
