Abstract

This paper will explore the features that optimize suspension performance for a Formula SAE racecar, focusing on suspension geometry. Employing research and designs from previous year’s cars, the suspension will be designed using the iterative design process. To help with this process, multiple programs and methods will be used. When the design is finalized it will be built and installed on the 2019 Viking Motorsport’s Formula SAE car.
