SUSPENSION

While the objective of suspension on a passenger car is to provide a comfortable ride, its objective on a race car is to maximize performance by keeping the car interfaced with the ground as effectively as possible. This is ultimately done by optimizing load and movement of the tires. Boasting over 200 parts per car, this subsystem includes springs, dampers, links, as well as the uprights, hubs, wheels, and tires. It also includes the geometry, or kinematics, of the suspension.
