The Michigan Hyperloop team will compete at the 2018 Hyperloop Pod Competition on July 22, 2018. All pods must be self propelled and the competition will be judged on speed. Hines Industries is proud to sponsor the Michigan Hyperloop team by providing balancing services. The force created by unbalance increases exponentially with speed. Balanced wheels reduce vibration, reduce damage at high speeds, and reduce significant damage to bearings/suspension. For more information on the University of Michigans Hyperloop team, click here.
