Rep: 10 student917 is on a distinguished road
Default What kind of suspension is this?

For a school project we have to create a concept car (I study automotive in Rotterdam). For this concept car we want a cheap and aerodynamic car.

So we came up with the idea to use a double wishbone suspension with a different kind of pushrod setup.
Instead of traditional pushrods the upper wishbone extends past the pivoting point and the shock attaches to the end of it.

I am curious as to how this setup is called. At school we have a kitcar (a Tiger Avon I think) with this setup.

If needed I can (badly) draw out what I mean.

If anyone knows what the calulation for the ratio is, let me know.

Sorry if I posted in the wrong section.
