Ep13. Chassis Setup Using Simulation with ChassisSim’s Danny Nowlan

Chassis simulation is everywhere in Professional motorsports, but rarely seen at club level. Simulation expert Danny Nowlan, creator of ChassisSim and regular contributor to Race Engineering magazine, joins me on the show to explain the value of simulation.

We discuss how it works and how you can use it to evaluate the lap time effects of your different racecar settings (springs, bars, dampers and more.)

Hold on to your seats as it does get a bit technical at times. The shows goal however remains principally one of raising awareness. To introduce to you that these kinds of tools exist,  how they can help you and that choosing suspension setting need not be a black art.
