The Snowmobile Suspension - A High-Speed Motion Picture Study 710667
A high-speed motion picture analysis of a typical snowmobile suspension system has been conducted. The bogie wheel system at the vehicle track and the leaf springs at the skis have both been examined as the vehicle traversed a prescribed ground profile. The technique has proven to be quite useful in determining the effectiveness of the suspension system. Several tentative recommendations for improving vehicle stability have been made as a result of this study.
