      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

SUSPENSION: How Stuff Works

3 posts in this topic

There always seems to be a hunger for knowledge as to how things work in 1:1 cars, so that models don't get built that are goofy and totally impractical.

Here's a pretty good introductory course on how vehicle suspension works. It's not all-inclusive, but it imparts the necessary concepts to help any model builder who wants to actually understand what he's (or she's...gotta be PC) building a model of.

Great post here Ace. I never thought knowing this would be necessary but I enjoyed learning very much. Videos were cool to watch as well.

That's a good site, I use it whenever I need to figure something out, especially automotive related. Could you point out what type suspension problems you notice? I've seen models that seem too low, but I've seen that with real cars too, so it doesn't seem like a problem to me.
