Several people have asked about more specifics on shocks and setup and Matt Davis is on the show to share his insights.
He worked at Bilstein for years in Design Engineering and got his start with the FSAE group in college.
He spent almost an entire 2 years running a shock dyno at Bilstein. I don't think I asked what that shock dyno would cost if we wanted to buy it.
We start by getting his background in racing and then I get to ask noob questions (hopefully you have some of the same questions).
Here is the car swing they used for the FSAE car: Car inertia swing (was hoping it was a crazy swing like the ones people can do a 360 on yes you need to see those on YouTube).
Should you do shocks first or springs and sway bars?
Let us know what you learned and what questions you have!
