Chassis Stiffness

Chassis Stiffness or Torsional rigidity means the calculated or measured stiffness of the structure alone. While the installed Stiffness is stiffness measured at the hub faces. Torsion stiffness is an important characteristic in chassis design with an impact on the ride and comfort as well as the performance of the Read more…

Ground Effect

Let’s demystify the myth around Ground Effect. The 1970s and early 1980s witnessed development in racing technology at a furious pace. Racecar engineers and designers knew that working with airflow around the car can generate downforce. Initially, the focus was to make the car streamlined and to reduce drag. However, Read more…
