Shipped Dec. 31, 2014

Volume 9 issue 2 of Collision Magazine will be at the presses soon and to your mailboxes before you know it.  In the upcoming issue, there are a number of interesting and innovative changes to the format of some of the articles as well as, of course, the DVD from the 2014 ARC-CSI Conference in Las Vegas which includes data from some innovative and interesting crash tests form the 2014 Crash Conference.  In the upcoming issue, you'll find articles on CDR data anticipated from some of the vehicles subject to the GM ignition switch recall, a review of data from "low speed" crash testing of recent model vehicles, an article on wheel slip and reported or recorded vehicle speed, as well as articles on probability, vehicle dynamics, motorcycles and more.

As usual, the complete data set from the ARC-CSI Crash Conference will be on the included DVD. On that disk one will find a series of low speed crash tests with an occupant in various seating positions, ignition switch data testing (related to the article in this issue) and a variety of other crash tests done with very recent model cars, a feature unique to the ARC-CSI Crash Conference.

With regard to the ARC-CSI Crash Conference, be on the lookout for announcements about major changes in store for the ARC-CSI Crash Conference crash day venue starting in 2015.  We're not saying much officially yet but when was the last time you were present for crash tests conducted WITHIN the confines of an actual NASCAR racetrack with stock cars racing by at up to 160mph? Gentlemen, bring your cameras....
