In thread800-235202: Where to start - Van Diemen Formula Ford DSD1 referenced factory settings for this system. I could use it all, but am in particular need of information regarding the specific pre-load of the 'shuttle.' Further, empirical data on the effects of limiting its travel on various rough-surface tracks would be wonderful. In particular I am saddled with setup on an RF93 (FF). This is proving an engineering challenge. What is the relationship between the CG, roll-centre, tyres, and the spring rate on the shuttle? Also the relationship between the shuttle springs' rates and that of the front coil-over clearly must be finely observed, but I can find no baseline nor mathematical basis for the design. Can anyone help shorten my recursive foundering process? Too many variables -- too little time.
