Which is one of the most important pieces of a winning race car?
Ask any racing engineer and, invariably, you'll get the same answer: The chassis!
So what's involved in designing and fabricating a race car chassis that will have a shot at the winner's circle?
In The Race Car Chassis, author Forbes Aird distills the answer down to the basics, and presents a study of the design of stiff and lightweight race car frames, and materials used for their construction.
He also covers important topics such as:
- Chassis Types
- Chassis History
- Suspension Design
- Joining Ferrous Metals
- Joining Light Alloys
- And much more!
In sum, this guide is a must-have resource for engineers, engineering students, fabricators, racers, and anyone interested in the fundamentals of a race car chassis, whether road, drag, circle trac, open- or closed-wheel.
