    For single cylinder applications, especially with respect to the rules, your bigger focus should be on the pulsed flow effect across the turbine of the turbo.
    My personal opinion is that at GT06...

    Watch your A/F monitor as you rev and un-rev the monitor. Does it show anything very rich or lean on rev?
    Is there a chance you are losing crank sync loss on rev? Note: This is common with...

    I don't enjoy when the minimum turn radius is used. It's not fun to drive, it's not fun to watch, and the only people who like it are those who want to throw a "gotcha" out there just to make sure...

    I would see it as non-issue unless you can produce a measured result showing a significant difference it makes in terms of vehicle set-up or design.
    Would this effect cause you have a different...

    This reminds me of all of the threads asking about the negative aero effect of engine exhaust tips pointing forward.

    I certainly have seen the internals, and I understand, it's just not the same as a rack. There really isn't a lot of reverse efficiency inherent to the design either. Almost every single part of...

    Off topic, but I'm still surprised at how much "wind up" is considered acceptable in the steering system with these cars under load.
    If you clamp the wheels or hubs in place and try to steer the...

    The Pacejka model isn't the end all, be all either. GM and older Pratt and Miller fits use piece-wise functions to fit the tire characteristics.
    Those work really well too as the tire steady state...

    Nils,

    Start small.


    In reality, the Pacejka model you are trying to wield is a sophisticated, expansive, and sensitive set of equations.

    The point I'm looking for.
    It's been done with several production vehicles and it is not uncommon for industrial vehicles to phase the steering shaft to lower the on-center steering effort.

    For driveshafts...absolutely, otherwise vibration is guaranteed and failure is more likely.

    However, why is this considered a problem that steering is not absolutely linear?

    Charles,

    On a similar note, the simplicity, speed, and insanity of Outlaw Karts have captured my heart recently.

    Build the car, stand in it, jump up and down to jounce it (with a calibrated 80kg human). If the car bottoms out before the limit of travel it is too low, if it does not, it is too high.
