Thread: droop limiter/ preloaded spring

  1. #1
    Hi guys!!
    Anyone know how does a droop limiter/spring preload affects the load trasfer on the car?
    Why does it improves the lap time in some formula cars? Shouldn't it ruin the roadholding?
    I thought it ruins the roadhoding so I refused to use them, but i have seen and I realized that some race car are going truly fast using them..
    Thanks

    I knew this had been brought up quite awhile ago; it took a minute to find it, but here you go:

    Do you know another source rather than the forum? As a could see it isn't an easy subject
