Suspension

Suspension Members

The purpose of the suspension is to make the job easier for the tires and give a predictable behaviour so that the driver will have control of the car. The suspension shall help to keep the tires in constant contact with the ground so that the tires can be used to the limit of their capacity. In both the autocross event and the endurance event the suspension design and steering geometry is of major importance. A well working design helps the drivers perform at the edge of their capacity. For 2016 we are using a 13inch unequal length double A-arm suspension system with pull rod front and push rods rear actuation.

Swansea University Race Engineering (SURE), part of "Formula Student (FS) is Europe's most established educational motorsport competition, run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Backed by industry and high profile engineers such as our Patron Ross Brawn OBE, the competition aims to inspire and develop enterprising and innovative young engineers. Universities from across the globe are challenged to design and build a single-seat racing car in order to compete in static and dynamic events, which demonstrate their understanding and test the performance of the vehicle."
