  • Optimum Kinematics Forces Module – Track Replay

    While there are plenty of methods that can be used to calculate the worst-case scenario for a vehicle’s suspension, there is no better way to know than from track data. Rather than estimating the performance envelope of a vehicle by considering the maximum forces that may be experienced by the vehicle, a track replay provides the realistic values based on the suspension08 loads seen on track. One of the features that has ...
