Suspension Kinematics

Some see suspension kinematics as a dark art. To MDS it’s just a matter of detail. MDS can measure and input data into our suspension modelling software allowing us to optimise your vehicles kinematics. Alternatively MDS can design your suspension and kinematics model from scratch and provide you with the correct pickup points for the desired outcome. It’s important that these pickup points are accurate which is why we perform a detailed hand measurement of your vehicle using both digital and analogue tools. We do not advice on using 3D scanning for pickup point measurement. Once we have this detailed model of your suspension, it’s then a straight forward exercise to move these points to obtain the best possible kinematics outcome for your vehicle. Moving points by just 5mm can have a dramatic effect on the handling and feel of your car on a race track, and it’s for this reason that we offer this service.
