Top Customer Reviews
It is heavily biased towards slicks and wings single seater and little of guidance for the larger number of McPherson Strut saloon car owners. Wheel frequency and spring rate calculations are included and analysing geometry. Componentry is looked at and damper systems explained.
I think for the average club racer it is interesting but not a really how to guide for rationalising what needs to be looked at. This book needs to be supplemented with additional reading on the same subject when considering non-single seaters.
An absolute must for anyone wanting to understand how race car suspension works.
