Item Description

Former Pontiac engineer and automotive performance author Herb Adams, wrote this book to explain a few of the automotive chassis engineering aspects that are directly related to the design, building and testing of high-performance cars.

Knowing that most enthusiasts do not have an engineering background, Adams discusses chassis, suspensions and car handling with words that the average layperson will understand.

Although the book is titled Chassis Engineering, it is not an engineering book per se, but rather an explanation on how engineering principles are applied to the automobile chassis.

With the help of this book, most enthusiasts with average mechanical skills, will be able to make significant improvements to the handling and cornering abilities of their cars, whether for street or competition.

Hundreds of photos and illustrations augment the text as to what is required to design, build and tune a car chassis for maximum cornering power.


Subject: This book will show you what is required to design, build and tune a car chassis for maximum street or racetrack performance. ISBN-10: 1557880557 | ISBN-13: 9781557880550 | HPBooks 1055
