Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? In most forms of racing, cornering speed is the key to winning. On the street, precise and predictable handling is the key to high performance driving. However, the art and science of engineering a chassis can be difficult to comprehend, let alone apply. Chassis Engineering explains the complex principles of suspension geometry and chassis design in terms the novice can easily understand and apply to any project.

Hundreds of photos and illustrations illustrate what it takes to design, build, and tune the ultimate chassis for maximum cornering power on and off the track. Read more Read less.

The biggest failure of this book is that the title is completely misleading. There is no engineering or physics in this book. You aren't going to get any more depth out of it than a magazine article, which is the authors background. I just can't recommend this book in any way. Even if you don't know anything about suspension and chassis dynamics, I suggest you go elsewhere because the descriptions are short and woefully inadequate, or even missing.

The best drawings are on the cover, the others are too simple, but drawn to make them look "engineering like". That basically makes them garbage. I would spend several minutes looking at the basic diagrams trying to figure out what it was trying to show. I'm an engineer, so it's not a problem on my half. Only about pages with large print, large spacing, and over-sized tables and drawings.

First of all I should say this isn't a terrible book. The main issue I had with it is that it is very oriented towards a type of racing and type of technology that isn't applicable to my interests. This is very "American" in terms of its content and point of view. The author is a former engineer for GM, came up through the production car ranks true to form many references are made to "cost", which usually isn't the first concern of a racer before stepping into racing, and the emphasis is on oval track cars, solid axles suspension types, and related topics.

If you come from the world of independent suspensions and road racing, you might find it amusing when he refers to types of independent rear suspensions as "Corvette" and "Jaguar" and cringe when he illustrates how to bend axle housings on solid axles cars to change camber and toe "settings".

Independent suspensions are given a cursory overview and treatment, but it's clear the author isn't as comfortable talking about them or have the depth of expertise as compared to other suspension alternatives. That said, I did learn more about the world of solid or live axle suspension types, while not directly useful to my pursuits, did expand my knowledge of how they work, the applications they are better suited for, and their comparative advantages to their independent cousins.

Ignore the kind of hokey title, it's packed full of useful, practical information and does an excellent job of explaining some pretty complex topics.

This book goes into detail about custom chassis design. Specifically chassis made out of steel or aluminum tubing space frame. There is a somewhat negative tone about sprint car chassis design throughout the book, pretty much everything you shouldn't do when designing a chassis for safety and strength. Throughout the book they mention over and over again the importance of geometric shapes and designing to the strengths of each shape.

Overall I feel I have learned a great deal about designing a custom chassis and I feel fairly confident at actually getting to the point of creating my very own.

Herb Adams wrote this many years ago but it is still considered a bible among engineers to this day. Lost my copy from years ago and I am glad it is still available.

If you are building something new or are thinking about it, you need this book. You will find out quickly why ladder frames are still used today and it is not because they are resistant to twisting.

This is a very useful book that provides some valuable insights on how to improve the handling of your street car or race car.

It is readable, understandable information that cuts through the speed market crap about how to get real handling performance without creating a powered rock. Some of the changes I was planning probably would have had little performance effect but really hurt the cars ride. The book is a little dated but basics don't change and that understanding is key. My only wish was there would have been a little more info on shock tuning.
