Good evening all,
It's pretty obvious many are playing with suspensions
do they make you faster, slower, drive you crazy?
What does a suspension do? How do engine powered cars laws transfer to gravity powered?
do they, or are we under a new set of rules? (physics wise)
first off as a racer of many years, I know that no one wants to share their speed secrets, thats racin'
but it we all get faster and more consistant, the better racing there is to watch.
Especially for non-competetors that just like watching racing.
Every car I have built is reactive in one way or another.
offset weights, weights on springs, or even a 10g carbide ball in tube of fluid, all react differently
all 3 roll centers, and centers of inertia will change a cars cornering approach/exit performance,
based upon where those lines intersect (in theory)
I would like this thread to be about "theory" and equally what didn't work, thus protecting "speed secrets", too lol
I think the "fast physics" we chase, are, at times as elisive as and 11 second (1:1) pass in the 80's
maybe its because 1:1 rules are a bit more cut in paste? mean nothing?
I don't know
lets talk about it
we are here:
