Digitek Chassis Development for Fairchild Experimental Safety Vehicle 720069

The development of chassis components to satisfy both formal vehicle response specifications and practical requirements of acceptable passenger car performance was undertaken as a part of the Federal Experimental Safety Vehicle program. Since the formal specifications were new and had never been applied to passenger car chassis design, the necessary development effort was challenging and explored new areas of vehicle performance optimization. The chassis configuration resulting from development for these new standards offers dramatic gains in several response and adhesion qualities, while retaining reasonable ride comfort.
