Drive in, I believe it was the Hurt Foundation who did those tests. I could be wrong but I think it was them as they did them in like 1980 or something.
Ya, that's the one with short snippets of the information published in magazines. Professor Harry Hurt (ironic pun) who was some university professor out west in granola land ( california). Wouldn't of remembered the name until you posted. Now I'll have to try and find a copy of the study if it's posted anywhere and I can find the name of it.
...and now that I found a summary of 'The Hurt Report', it doesn't look like the materials testing report I remember, but a detailed motorcycle accident analisys. Maybe the details I remember are buried in the main report. I do remember photos of them testing the materials on a test track with some gruesome results to the materials. Trying to find a full download of the report to satisfy my faded and jaded memory.
