suspension is one area where the calculations are massive, simply cannot be explained in a forum.

to start with, basic calculations include the weight of the car with driver, C.G. of the car & weight distribution.

since ours is an outboard suspension, based on the above factors, we decide & calculate the motion ratio, damping ratio, wheel rate & spring rate.

if you are interested in learning such stuff, you can download a wonderful e-book- name is "tune to win". it will cover all the basic stuff. for more advanced learning, you will have to refer various other books & many websites are also useful.

by the way, what is your project?

Well my project is Performance Oriented Electric car with good efficiency.
Now performance & efficiency don't go hand in hand but the to get the right balance would be challenging & great learning experience.

the car is named 'AM-01' & is built by our seniors. a great car. it has a 600CC Honda CBR engine. dampers are from pulsar but springs are custom made.

He raj,

Hey great pic's man.The RED color looks HOT.[:D]

The next thing i loved after the car were the trophies [lol]

I have 2 questions though -

1) Did you guys race with the STOCK engine ?

2) Electronic gear shift - was the current clutch & gear system modded or you guys had put in a complete different transmission (with electronic shifting) ?
