    So, day 1 is past now. Any updates/hashtags/lists?

    P.S. Nice to see Z around and (what seems) involved with design. Does that mean we are getting your awesome detailed insights once more Z?

    Hans Pacejka - In memoriam

    Sad news, rumor has it that Mr. Hans Pacejka has passed away. Despite never meeting him, he was a pioneer of modern vehicle dynamics and his work will be remembered and used for many years to come.

    Would second that, especially Chassis Design. Nevertheless, I would be very interested to take a look at the Mola book, just for the sheer pleasure of reading something "new"

    FSUK was interesting to say the least. Big players boycotting, different ruleset and mixed classes already make it different than most FS events, which IMO is a bad thing. If this continues to grow,...

    A damper is a damper. Do you have access to a shock dyno? If yes, choose/draw your desired damping curves, pick a damper body that suits your application, revalve until happy.

    Agree with almost every comment made in this thread. IMO the fact that East, FS Italy and FSUK dates are the same did not help (FS Italy still has open slots in the Electric class!!). We had FSUK and...

    Scott,

    thanks very much for this. Would love for other comps to organize something similar, but guess this would have to be up to the teams themselves. The only equivalent I can think of is the...

    Q. Why is "RoI" such a difficult concept for students?

    A. Perhaps because they have never had to make that "I" out of their own pockets?

    This. Exactly this.
