A well written book that covers all the main topics concerning suspension matters, what effects what and how to correct it, the use of pictures helps to clarify issues, and it is clear that the author knows what he is talking about, and has put it in to practice himself, the book is aimed a people who want to know the facts and how to apply them not just what F1 has done, as someone who has built a number of competition cars over the years I know when I am reading fact or fancy.

This book has be updated a number of times, and perhaps I can't help thinking each time Allan might have added another memoir of some previous acquaintance in motorsport. Unfortunately the read often strays away from the subject in hand.

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.

The book - 'Competition Car Suspension' is an excellent, well written manual that describes the design evolution of vehicle suspension and steering systems. The book is structured in an easy and logical way that identifies the best steering and suspension designs. It contains valuable data and calculations that will help and assist most 'would be' constructors and race car designers. An excellent read. Would recommend to all.

This book gives a great insight into the workings of race car suspension from the very basics to advanced geometry.

An absolute must for anyone wanting to understand how race car suspension works.

A very thorough review of suspension systems and good practical information if you are dealing with cars from the 70s, but probably superceded by computer based methods. The string and tape measure approach is so open to human error as to be at best approximate.

Bought this for my husband as he kept taking the one out at the library. He has read it cover to cover numerous times. Excellent reference if your setting up a race car.
