Hey everyone, I need a reply asap

I need to know the stopping distance of a humvee,any model, any speed but I need the source for it.

Its for a report of survey that my LT is doin.

First thing is to check your -10 and -20 (23&P) manuals. inparticular the TM 9-2320-280-10 check around page 2-110
If its not there give your QAQC shop (maintenance) a call and see if they dont have the "specs" readily availible.

The HMMWV will stop from 60 to zero in 24 inches, provided that it's traveling downwards and that the 24 inches is reinforced concrete.

I checked the -10 and it didnt say sqaut,. The -20 doesnt have the spes in it, its more maintenrtanca and so is the -23&p.

I didnt have the luxury of calling my qaqc people because where we were at the assholes would not let me use there phone. My LT hasent said anything to me so far so maybe I am in the clear, I dont feel like looking any more.

NLECTC MSP Report

About 180 feet but that is for a Hummer H1. Very close to the real thing, except heavier (Leather seats, A/C, etc...)

Not to hijack the thread but it reminded me of another vehicle.

In the late 60's or early 70's, Clark Equipment Co. (Michigan Loaders & such) came out with a motorhome. It failed the Fed's brake test the next year. The Feds said that it had to accelerate to 65MPH and stop within a certain specified distance. It had good brakes but wasn't capable of getting up to 65 MPH, so it failed.

The answer you want is 20 ft @ 20mph.
I went out to the test track and verified it on their sheets.
If he gives you any crap, tell him you got it straight from the factory, it is what they use to test every vehicle and it is what we sign off on.
Good enough?

Can he not just take three different HMMWVs from the motor pool, try out some experiments, and take the average? You can use hosepipes for wet surface...

I work at the factory that produces them.
My answer is verifyable because it is the acceptance critera that the government uses to accept every vehicle.
If you have a problem, IM me and I'll give you my work phone number and your LT can call me and discuss it.
How is that for customer service?

Send me some of those new style power steering pumps for the M1114! That new design is a piece of crap and they are always backlogged!

Better yet tell them to use a better pump!

That is all...........

Car and driver or Motor trend has 60-0 info in one of the tables in the back. I couldn't find the info online though. If someone has a copy handy could they look it up?

I can't talk offically for the company, but yea, those pumps are real PITA for us right now.
The supplier is having "issues" right now.
I have a slug of bad ones sitting in my area right now I'm reviewing.
We will have to work harder on those, but we know it is a difficult thing.
