    I don't buy it either.

    My personal thoughts are that the higher the chassis stiffness, the more precisely the car will react to setup changes. If you make a setup change and the driver can't tell...

    Jersey Tom

    Less weight for more stiffness, accuracy, better integration with attached components and being able to use less parts for multiple functions are some advantages. Initially I don't...

    I heard those same rumours that RMIT won the cost event with UWA in second place.
