A reasonable introduction to peformance dynamics
on 12 June 2001
Unfortunately, I read Alan Staniforth's 'Competition Car Suspension' just before reading this and was not too impressed by the lack of depth of this work. Mainly aimed at the American market, it concentrates on large, heavy and relatively crude saloons and how to improve them. These methods are not necessarilly valid in the European market. It does, however, cover most suspension layout basics, the does and don'ts of spaceframe chasis design and basic aerodynamics. All in all a reasonable introduction to performance car dynamics.
