My car? Broken chassis? How? ....
Heave is just another way to generate aero forces. If you pitch the nose down the front splitter gains downforce to a point. It's like pitching up on a plane. If you pitch up and roll your plane yaws like it was supposed to.
That's where left foot braking blended with acceleration come in to play. With soft dampers and stiff springs you have fast weight transfer. ....
handily for my purpose it's all been put into one post (the dangerously sloppy terminology)
Heave is vertical motion (along the Z axis)
(so front heave can't be different to rear heave unless the chassis is broken)
Heave isn't like pitching up
(heave and pitch are different things - that's why they are called by different names)
pitch is the angular motion (around the Y axis)
weight transfer is (in essence) unaffected by damper forces
the wheels 'see' the force from deceleration of the car's mass regardless of the route(s) taken by that force
(yes if the suspensions travel more eg due to low damper force there will be some further change in wheel loads)
'left foot braking blended with acceleration' - what does that mean ?? (rwd presumably ?
combined braking and tractive torques ..... producing .....
net torque zero ?
net torque decelerating ?
net torque accelerating ?
ok - the tilting DF wing might seem to be one of the designer's rare 'free lunches'
I did sustained inverted flight on the basis that sustained inversion didn't throw out oil (reversion to erect flight does)
yes inverted turns could be seen as more efficient and easier
