It's no secret that lost races and crashes are caused by what is usually referred to as mechanical failure. But author Carroll Smith rightly contends that all failures are human in origin. Poor designs, incorrect manufacture and assembly, unreasonable demands, and negligent maintenance all lead to the dreaded "mechanical failure." Engineer To Win details racing materials technology and many other related subjects. Published by Motorbooks International. Distributed by SAE.

Hand-selected by racing engineer legend Carroll Smith, the 28 SAE Technical Papers in this book focus on the chassis and suspension design of pure racing cars, an area that has traditionally been - farmed out - to independent designers or firms since the early 1970s. Smith believed that any discussion of vehicle dynamics must begin with a basic understanding of the pneumatic tire, the focus of the first chapter. The racing tire connects the racing car to the track surface by only the footprints of its four tires. Through the tires, the driver receives most of the sensory information needed to maintain or regain control of the race car at high force levels. The second chapter, focusing on suspension design, is an introduction to this complex and fascinating subject. Topics covered include chassis stiffness and flexibility, suspension tuning on the cornering of a Winston Cup race car, suspension kinematics, and vehicle dynamics of road racing cars.

After months of preparation, practice and planning, the season's race championship can rely on just one fastener doing its job. If that fastener shears or loosens, the whole race can be lost -- not to mention valuable machinery and even lives. This informative publication is a guide to hardware for race and street cars. Famed race team manager Carroll Smith tells you what each nut, bolt, fastener, and plumbing piece is, how it works, how to torque it, where to use it, and where not to use it. Over 320 photographs, technical drawings, and illustrations are included. Published by Motorbooks International. Distributed by SAE.
