We need someone called Victor on here to explain vectors properly. And someone else called Clarence to make sure the wheels have enough clearance. ;)

How about Dellis?

Awhile back asked if a steering wheel is really a lever.

Link to steering wheel maker who seems to think yes: http://www.steeringw...eel-theory.html

Edited post so Victor checked out.
:P

Spent the last several evenings re-reading Bob Bondurant On High Performance Driving, with John Blakemore, c1982, Motorbooks International.

Bob Bondurant started racing as a kid in 1950s Southern California. He became one of Shelby's team drivers and with Dan Gurney won GT class at Le Mans in 1964, then drove for Ford to win the Manufacturer's Championship in 1965.

He was a technical consultant for the movie Grand Prix, drove for BRM, Ferrari, and Eagle F1 teams, raced at Targa Florio, drove in the Can-Am series and drove a factory Porsche at the Ring.

Heck of a resume. Left stuff out like his 18/20 wins and two seconds in one season as a SoCal regional Corvette driver.

A second very high speed wreck, racing a privateer Can-Am McLaren, after an earlier 150mph loft off thru the trees outside Curva Grande, while having flat out test day fun in an ATS F1, suggested maybe time had come to think seriously about his idea of starting a high performance driving school.
At Monza he credits no seat belt to saving his life by being thrown out of the then instantly shredded car.

He taught a bus load of Hollywood celebrities how to drive race cars while they made movies about racing.
Good idea for us he thought of a driving school, as we now have a couple generations of pioneering influence on race team heritage and his book about how to drive.

Bob recommends two other authors...Taruffi and Jenkinson.
His book should be essential reading as well.

From start to end it is an easy very interesting read.
It is in plain language and it moves along.
Sentences make sense the first time thru.


Just like here.
:D
