GHiT 0445: Nik Romano from Fast Sideway – Suspension 101 – Part 2
We started our introduction to suspensions on episode 430 with Nik Romano. Nik rejoins for part 2 of our Suspension 101 series. In this episode, we move on from suspension geometry and start to deal with the most important aspect of a suspension : the interaction of the tire with the track. We go into a simple way to test how/if your suspension geometry changes are during its travel up and down (compression and rebound). Next, we go into some of the different types of fixed and adjustable coil overs and how they are constructed and work within the suspension system. We even begin to get into how you can use the suspension to increase grip and then to start to shift the grip around within your car to aid your driving.
We answer the question that has puzzled us since the beginning “why would you want a rear wing on a front wheel drive car”?
