Abstract

[Abstract]: Looking at various rear suspension configurations, design a rear suspension configuration to replace the factory Ford Escort Hotchkiss style rear suspension with a design that will allow for ideal suspension geometry to be kept in check throughout variances in ride and roll as well as allowing for adjustability to allow the suspension to be tuned for certain track conditions as well as being capable of working in with different vehicle settings as a whole.
