Tech Talk: Anti-Dive & Roll Center

ANTI-DIVE: So with tech topic about instant center and anti-squat we have the reverse to consider. The same geometry that affects acceleration, also goes into deceleration (braking). The exact opposite reaction will happen during braking. If your instant center is on the anti-squat line the car should remain relatively flat during braking. If you move forward or aft of that line, then body movement will start to happen which may or may not be ideal. As with everything in the suspension world a balance is needed. The suspension that has the right balance for the conditions will always be more…

Tech Talk: Instant Center

A common term thrown around in the suspension and chassis world is instant center. What the heck is it and what does it mean? Instant center is located by drawing an imaginary line through the upper suspension links to where it intersects with a similar imaginary line drawn through the lower links. Think of instant center as the pivot or hinge point of the suspension at a specific given ride height. If you were to replace all the arms (say a front suspension), or all the links (in say a 4 link rear) with 1 big arm, where would that…

Tech Talk: Rear Suspension Types

Ok, so its probably necessary at this point to discuss a little about suspension design, We’ll start with solid rear axle suspensions because that’s what most of us have and there are many designs, and so much confusion about the how and why for each setup. Each type of suspension has its own inherent pros and cons, and each style can be analyzed and discussed enough to write an entire book, so this will be a brief overview of each explaining its components and uses. On its most basic level a suspension suspends the vehicle above the tires (maybe that’s…

Syclone 3-Link Testing

Syclone test truck is planned to hit the ground later today with coilover/suspension upgrade on all 4 corners. We are excited to show what we have come up with for the rear, I think it will be ground breaking but you will have to wait for initial testing before we go for any public pictures. It will be worth the wait though. Thanks again to Viking shocks for helping us select the right shock/spring for this combination. Stay tuned.

Tech Talk: Springs

So now that you’ve read our tech talk on selecting a shock, you now need to match the correct springs to them for the type of driving you will be doing (daily driven road or track use). First thing you will want to know is how much does each corner of the vehicle weigh. Lets say a GMC typhoon weighs 4k lbs without a driver. On the scales we see 1200lbs on each front corner, and 800 on each rear corner. (example weights only) Clearly the front will require a higher spring rate than the rear. Springs are typically rated…
