Van Diemen mono-shock dynamics

Van Diemen mono-shock dynamics

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.
