Ride height sweep

Just wondering what a ride height sweep includes and how do you perform it?

Any info helpful.

Thanks

Never heard of it.

Are you sure you have the terminology correct?

1200Datto27 has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I have heard the term being used to describe a static test program where by you setup different ride heights on the vehicle, and then measure the changes that occur to the suspension geometry, COG, etc. From the data points gained, you can then interpolate what changes occur for any ride height and then apply them to the vehicle for tuning purposes.

Did you mean ride height range?

Googling for that yields many hits, inc. this one: http://www.chassissim.com/blog/wp-co...lling_tips.pdf
About "ChassisSim",a suspension modelling program I think.
