Description

By: Allan Staniforth .

Competition Car Suspension A Practical Handbook - The design and development of competition car suspension systems is a vital ingredient of winning performance. Here, Allan Staniforth, an acknowledged expert on the subject, explains the theory and practice of successful suspension engineering and explores in an easy-tounderstand and readable style how and why suspension systems work.

Since the first edition was published in 1988 there have been some quite revolutionary changes, partly through advancing technology but also forced by major changes in rules at the peak of the sport. At all levels, whether professional or dedicated amateur, racing people have been refining and improving their approaches to both computer and constructional aspects of the racing car.

This expanded fourth edition provides a detailed interpretation with calculations, reasons and pointers for those keen to analyse their own cars or planned projects. Here, full coverage is given to the ever more complex aspects of racing car technology, including the latest damper and monoshock systems.

Allan Staniforth, one-time RAF navigator and Daily Mirror reporter, is now a freelance writer and suspension tuner. He is perhaps best know for the Terrapin DIY racing car and as author of the Race and Rally Car Source Book. He has built several specials over the years, and is now driving a Scott Megapin (Kawasaki-powered on electronic injection and engine management) in a return to the 1100 class. He is still fascinated by suspension, whether for hillclimbing or Formula One racing.
