Post Thoughts on this model?
on: January 29, 2020, 19:09

New to suspension design, but I'm designing a front suspension for my 1969 Falcon using C6 Corvette uprights and fabricated control arms as well as a tube chassis. I plan to use the car for mostly street driving but with aggressive track and autocross type stuff occasionally.

Heres the link to the model: http://racingasp.com/ojhei7wi

Second- for anti-dive, I'm tilting the upper control arm down toward the rear approx. 9 deg. So, in using this model, would the connection point for my UCA at the frame be sort of the center of the control arm, and bring the connection point up in the front and down in the back respectively to achieve the 9 degrees? This is my assumption.

Third question- As far as the suspension leverage ratio, is this the inverse of the motion ratio? Or are they the same thing. I've read somewhere that another suspension designer achieved a .8:1, but I can't get this shock mounting point out far enough to get past 1.05:1. To get .95:1 I have to put the shock mount right on top of the lower ball joint.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
