Most equations for chassis design involve the tires cornering stiffness which is zero at its peak lateral force for a given condition. Just looking in Miliken this zeros out a lot of values if you were designing a neutral car that in theory all tires reached the limit at the same time or if you were analysing a car simply at the lateral force limits at each tire in the conditions being analyzed. This seems unrealistic, partly because it is, but I was curious if there was another type of analysis of design approach for when the tire is not in the neutral region...?
