I bought the book (along with several competing books) because I was trying to redesign the suspension on my racecar. It is no longer a street vehicle, so I was trying to remove the 'street handling' characteristics. I found that Neil presented a clear path to help me with this, beyond the theory and numbers seen in other texts.
Thanks ... Jay Novak
