Recommended Posts

Hi, Could someone point me in the right direction regarding simple suspension for a car, given that I already know: ground height (below each wheel), car vertical speed, wheel size e.t.c A formula for just 1 suspension strut would be nice Thanks! Skuzz

Havnt done it before, but i suspect that the professor''s around here would say "add a spring or spring system to your car/wheels." Hopefully you can research implementing springs and maybe someone in the know can give more details.

I would like to know more about this as well.

good luck

Yes, but you will also want to add a viscous damper for each spring. Helps for stability and realism!
